[SOLVED] vlc media player won't start

Post by BobMacall » Fri Oct 09, 2015 12:10 pm

I installed a new version of vlc but it doesn't start when inserting a dvd. It won't start when
selecting from the menu or clicking the icon on the desktop. It will start with vlc in a terminal.
I installed a new version because the old version wasn't working properly either and that was after
reinstalling the old version. I also deleted the vlc dir under home/.config.
any ideas?

thanks,
Bob

Bob:

Installed from where and how exactly did you install it?

It's working correctly now. I didn't do anything except a reboot. I noticed
that it seem to be taking a long to boot up, but now vlc starrts properly when
a dvd is put into the drive. Not sure why that fixed it.
