  • VLC is a QT based app, so there may be a dependency lacking for Gnome.
    Fire up pamac software and type the name in the search bar.
    Double click on the package name to get to its extra info.
    Click on Dependencies tab and check if there is one missing.

  • @hannahisabelle , I forgot how Gnome hanles it. In KDE my SMPlayer stays hidden in the taskbar. I have to click on an icon (notifications in my case) to open a drop-down menu and find it.
    Is there such operation in Gnome, maybe? Just check it out.

    vlc has also a terminal interface so it needs qt4 to run the gui…

  • Yes, qt4 for GUI is mentioned as a dependency, so (in pamac) it should be shown unticked. :angel:
