vlc stuck in minimal view at start up
I can't get vlc to stop starting up in minimal view. I clicked the minimal option in view to try it out and can click it again to fix it via right click/view/minimal view. However, this doesn't stop it from starting up in minimal view.(For some reason pressing control+H doesn't work either, even though that's what is listed as the shortcut right beside the option)
I've even gone as far as to uninstall and reinstall vlc using ubuntu software center, which I thought would reset everything. Now when I start videos or a just try to start vlc, I don't have access to my buttons without changing the view setting. This is crap for me. I use the slider all the time!
Can someone please help me figure this one out. I've tried to search for a solution online and checked the pages under help in vlc, but have yet to find a solution.
And then, all of a sudden, nothing happened!
