VLC 1.1.4 open files etc. not working

Post by lKingjr »

I have LM10 KDE installed and just noticed that VLC's open file menu, open advanced file, open directory choices are not working. I can right click on a video file and use "open with" and that does start the video in VLC. I do have oxygen-transparent installed if that could be the problem. I also noticed that gnome-mplayer fails to stay open. I get this error when I start it from the terminal...
louis@louis-VirtualBox ~ $ gnome-mplayer
**
Gtk:ERROR:/build/buildd/gtk+2.0-2.22.0/gtk/gtkrecentmanager.c:1942:get_icon_fallback: assertion failed: (retval != NULL)
Aborted
anyone know how to fix either one?

I have that problems with GTK apps like gnome-mplayer fails just like that - when i deleted the icon theme's in: ~/.kde/share/icons and installed them to: /usr/share/icons it worked just fine for me ...

Hope that helps for that one ...

Hi.
I saw several "workarounds" in this bug report. If you haven't already seen it, please check it out. I think it might give you
some idea of how to fix it.

PS! The workaround by "vaxxipooh" is also mentioned in that bug report.

moving the icons fixed the gnome-mplayer problem but I still can't open files in VLC from it's file menu.

I'm getting this error in the terminal...
KGlobal::locale::Warning your global KLocale is being recreated with a valid main component instead of a fake component, this usually means you tried to call i18n related functions before your main component was created. You should not do that since it most likely will not work
