[SOLVED] VLC problem - please help
This is my first time posting something on here, so please bear with me.
My friend helped me switch operating systems to Ubuntu about six months ago. The other day, I tried to watch something in VLC, but the program would collapse right after it initiated.
When I typed in vlc into Terminal and tried to play something, this is the error message that comes up:
Paint device returned engine == 0, type: 1
QPainter::begin: Paint device returned engine == 0, type: 1
[????????] x11 video output error: X11 request 140.19 failed with error code 11:
BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
X Error of failed request: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 140 (XVideo)
Minor opcode of failed request: 19 ()
Serial number of failed request: 83
Current serial number in output stream: 84
I'm not very computer savvy, so any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks
