I intalled vlc and it ran fine. Downloaded the skins and extracted to user/share/vlc. I then went to preferences and chose a skin and pointed to the directary. Now vlc aborts when started. This is what is from the terminal:
ken@localhost ~ $ vlc
VLC media player 2.0.7 Twoflower (revision 2.0.6-54-g7dd7e4d)
[0xd96338] skins2 interface: skin: subX author: Martin Poehlmann
vlc: malloc.c:2369: sysmalloc: Assertion `(old_top == (((mbinptr) (((char *) &((av)->bins[((1) - 1) * 2])) - __builtin_offsetof (struct malloc_chunk, fd)))) && old_size == 0) || ((unsigned long) (old_size) >= (unsigned long)((((__builtin_offsetof (struct malloc_chunk, fd_nextsize))+((2 * (sizeof(size_t))) - 1)) & ~((2 * (sizeof(size_t))) - 1))) && ((old_top)->size & 0x1) && ((unsigned long)old_end & pagemask) == 0)' failed.
I have tried to delete vlc, and delete vlc folder in user/share and .local/share and then reinstall vlc with the same error in terminal.
Any help for this, thanks, ken
