do you really need to run vlc as root?

What version of Debian are you running, and how long have you had it installed?

But yeah, why the heck are you running it as root?

actually it should complain about being run as root.

HOW did you install VLC?

A casual search showed that it could be a problem with infinality font packages. Did you have these sort of things installed? Or, as a workaround, try the --reset-plugins-cache switch.

When I run VLC as root this is what I get:

Code: Select all
root@itsmy:~# vlc
VLC is not supposed to be run as root. Sorry.
If you need to use real-time priorities and/or privileged TCP ports
you can use vlc-wrapper (make sure it is Set-UID root and
cannot be run by non-trusted users first).

Yes. The problem is exactly what it says -- VLC is not supposed to run as root. Period.

Log in as a normal user and then try to run VLC. Then show us what's the output of the command, if it still fails.

If for some reason, you want to run VLC as root, try this: https://unix.stackexchange.com/question ... er-in-root
