    VLC Player, No Video


    [root@localhost ~]# lspci | grep -i vga
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel 945GME Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
    [root@localhost ~]# grep -i driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Driver "kbd"
    Driver "synaptics"
    Driver "mouse"
    Driver "intel"


    I am having the same problems, but I don't see those options in VLC.

    Hi and Welcome !

    Try replacing "intel" with "vesa" in VideoCard section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Open Terminal and execute this
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Edit file and press Ctrl+X, Y and hit Enter key to save file.

    The graphical method: (for GNOME)

    Press Alt+F2 this opens up Run menu.
    Type:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    type your password and hit enter.

    I suggest you to make a backup copy before fiddling with the original xorg.conf file

    Code:
    sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.orig

    vlc player problems

    B][/B] I canti I cant get vlc player to wori. i did the synaptic package install, but i get an error that says VLC PLAYER CANT OPEN MRL. WHAT IS AN "MRL"? i have seen the (LIVDVDCSS2 ) file in the terminal when i did the update. So, i know that is something that VLC needs . But what else can i do? movie player will not work either. I am using UBUNTU 9.04 IS THERE ANOTHER OS I SHUOLD TRY? I would hate to go back to XP, but i am getting so frustrated with all the installs, downloads, and countless re-installation of ubuntu. I only got it to play dvds once, but had to un-install ubuntu because of a problem loging on to my computer. Now i just cant find a download or install package that will allow the player to work. HELP.
