Hi guys

I'm running ubuntu 8.10 since this weekend, but i'm a unix noob. i approach it by learning.
the version of vlc that was upgraded (with the upgrade to intrepid) is 0.9.4-1ubuntu3 (intrepid)

yesterday I tried loading in the /etc/share/vlc/skins2 directory the skins files available in the vlc website. Everything went well for a couple of them until I loaded the "Presume" skin. :confused:

When I tried to load vlc I got this error:


File reading failed: VLC could not open the file "/tmp/vltDR9Sdu/img\playlistWindow.png".



that msg seems to change everytime I try to run vlc. Vlc actually starts, I can see it in the side panel, it plays files, it even plays video BUT there is no graphic interface at all and I dont know how to get to the setting to asx it to choose another skin or just the default one. I tried deleting the skins from the directory but didnt work.

When I run vlc from the command konsole I get this lot:

I aslo tried to remove and install vlc again, no results...

If you want to return vlc to it's orig. settings then go into home folder -> .config and delete the vlc folder inside. (.config is a hidden folder

I'd be careful applying skins with the 0.9.x versions of vlc
