    tar -xvf vlc-0.9.9a.tar.bz2
    cd vlc-0.9.9a
    apt-get build-dep vlc
    ./configure --enable-run-as-root
    make
    make install
    apt-get install libvlc-dev libvlc2

    Thanks for this, but I already mentioned in my first post that this didn't work for me. Hence I named the title : Get VLC to work under root without compiling
    I hope it works for you and others though

    THIS DOES WORK there two ways of doing things in linux the right way and the wrong way

    messing with the program hex values is the WRONGWAY
    recompiling with the proper flags and commands is the RIGHTWAY

    Did you do apt-get remove --purge vlc

    you must remove and rompile and remove any make sure there are no leftover vlc folders or files please with me the output is there are errors after make or make install


    This is not an after though nor is it something I found somebody was trying to do and said it worked for them

    this work hail rain or snow so in order to help and get this to work please display the output and error's

    after you follow the guide whn you do "vlc" in the terminal what's the output ???????????



    Info man info This is so important saying"this doesn't work or It doesn't work for me is nonsense we are both using the same distro"


    so you have either lacking dependences or there's an error you need to resolve

    Default 回复: Re: Get VLC to work under root without compiling

    I prefer to adding a non-root user and edit the kde menus mannually to run vlc or Chrome as the non-root user...

    People should choose whatever they want. I just offered 1 solution... And about the tweak, the only thing that changes is vlc is checking ppid instead of geteuid, it's not a major modification...
