    Default VLC --> 'KDEInit could not launch 'vlc'.'

    This has happened for a long long time, "from the root account obviously" ... its not a horrible problem in the least but is rather annoying.

    Anyways thought id say something while i was here.

    Just open VLC and drag&drop files and no error or just change the menu command to the exact location of vlc.

    If you follow exactly what I said than the error won't occur.

    @sickness This is very true and it is the way i have been doing it whenever i need to ... however there happens to be a way to compile it with the root patch so that this error doesn't happen.
