Question information

Bune siua,

it seems that you are upgrading not from official sources. This bug is not triggered when upgrading from "official" repositories.

I'm therefore converting this bug to a support request for now. We can revert this if we can fix something in ubuntu about this.

Guten Tag Reinhard,
I've been able to fix the problem. You were right. The vlc I had installed was not from official repositories (I was to eager to test vlc 0.9.x and it wasn't available in official repositories). I've fixed the problem by starting up Synaptic and uninstalling everything vlc related. After that I used the terminal to install vlc and it worked, I now have the new vlc 0.9.4 installed. I have noticed that I no longer have that nice menu while in fullscreen and the video appears in a new window rather that inside the vlc controlls window, but I guess that is probably due to some settings...
