    vlc screwup

    I hit ac wrong key in vlc and my playlist changed from test to icons. I have tried everything I can find to get it back to text. No luck...
    Can some one tell me what I'm not seeing.

    Thanks

    Hi squrl.

    I can't help you with that specific problem, but if you haven't customized VLC too much, you can reset all settings by doing:
    Code:
    rm -rf ~/.config/vlc
    I hope that helps, and tell us how it goes.
    Regards.

    Thanks for the tip. I tried it but nothing changed.

    I finally uninstalled vlc completely. Then re installed it. Didn't help a bit.

    Sorry to hear that.

    Have you tried this?
    Code:
    VLC -> Tools -> Preferences
    There is a button at the bottom that says:
    Code:
    Reset Preferences
    Note that as the previous tip, you have to restart VLC.

    Tell us how it goes.
    Regards

    This is downright crazy. I found the reset then restarted vlc. Again it didn't change a thing.

    This is about the last of VLC for me. I like it but not enough to put up with something that should be a nobrainer. It took weeks to get around pulse and its foolishness now this.

    For what its worth I found the answer....

    In the upper right hand corner to the left of the search box is a little icon. Looks like a mini text page. I clicked on that to see what it did. Just like that the text play list was back. another click and it was icons. Sometimes I have to doubt my own sanity. Thanks for the tips and help.
