Post Problem with VLC skins
Hi all,

In vlc, I was trying to use custom skins, so I followed their directions. I downloaded the skins, created the folder skins2 and put the files there. Then, I was trying to set the path to use the custom skins from vlc's preferences, but it didn't work. I must've shut down vlc whith the preferences still open or something. Now, this is the output when I try to run vlc:

Code:
hernan@Inspiron1525:~$ vlc
VLC media player 1.1.10 The Luggage (revision exported)
Blocked: call to unsetenv("DBUS_ACTIVATION_ADDRESS")
Blocked: call to unsetenv("DBUS_ACTIVATION_BUS_TYPE")
Blocked: call to setlocale(6, "")
Blocked: call to setlocale(6, "")
[0xbe0220] vcdx access error: fread (): Is a directory
[0xc30c20] xml xml error: XML parser error (line 2) : Validation failed: no DTD found !
[0xb97ef0] skins2 interface error: no skins found : exiting


I tried with complete removal of vlc and all of its libraries and docs, then installed again, but nothing. Always the same error.

I'm on M11 with a dell inspiron 1525. Any suggestions are welcome :)

Thx!

Try removing the vlc folder found inside the hidden .config folder inside your home folder.
