I take the vlc from debian binary repository.
But I don't understand why it be installed within only command line interface ncurses. I want use it with X interfave such as wx.
Please, say me good repository and how to installing that.
I tried the next ways..

#cat /etc/apt/sources.list
#deb http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/debian sid main
#deb-src http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/debian sid main
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stable main non-free contrib

# vlc --list | grep interface
VLC media player 0.8.6a Janus
starting VLC root wrapper... using UID 0 (root)
* Running VLC as root is discouraged. *

It is potentially dangerous, and might not even work properly.

Have you looked in your applications menu to see if VLC was there?
Have you tried running wxvlc anyway?
You should probably update to 0.8.6h-4.
wxvlc is now a dummy package that installs the vlc package.
