Recently i had installed a kubuntu (i'm new to linux), recently being 3 days, 1 day of actual use. When i tried to watch dvd's i installed vlc and it didnt work at all.

I made this post:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1496410

then i found a thread with comprehesive guide,
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=766683
that installed about 250mb of stuff into my system and now i can watch everything pretty well (video_ts.ifo wont open still but xine now plays videos from dvds correctly and i can switch audio streams and subtitles).

Then i made a post at vlc forums and asked what can be wrong with vlc as it is closing after anything. They asked for some debug log, i provided it

istrebitel@dom-tux:~$ gdb --args vlc -vv

then they told me the subj:

Your system is so broken that it's not funny. PulseAudio is dead, DBus is dead, KDE is dead. Sorry. Please refer to Ubuntu support.
http://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=77028&p=253324#p253324

Now could someone please tell me what exactly should i fix in my system? And what do they mean by it being broken and dead? I can pretty well listen to audio and watch video and kde is working fine with all that nice eyecandy...

Why are you using pulseaudio on kubuntu? Have you tried using vlc with the audio out set to alsa?

Tried alsa output, it also crashes

tried "UNIX OSS" and it worked - i could listen to mp3 or view video

FFS EVEN VIDEO_TS NOW WORKS!

Phew! Finally!

Okay then, whats wrong with my alsa output or pulseaudio? What should i do to fix this Bus and KDE?

PS: The only thing i did to my system aside from installing packages was
- install nvidia drivers
- change config files for grub to see my windows dualboot
- change config files for disk manager to let me mount wihtout password requirement
- try to install alsa-driver-1.0.23 (make, make install) that failed to install and crashed my audio card, but after restart it looked like all was right

Right-click the alsa-info script link in my sig and "save as" to your user folder. Then run this command in a terminal:

sudo bash utils_alsa-info.sh
Enter your user password when prompted. Provide a link for the output or post it here using code tags.
