If that doesn't help, please provide the output of "inxi -G" "xvinfo" and "vlc <filename>" in the terminal. Edit...

Re: Distrowatch reveiw grumbles

Was the Swedish repo one of those very short-lived vincz ones? I thought we got rid of those for 17.1--if so, this person must be complaining about an unupdated MX 17, not 17.1. Too bad the reviews don't allow comments...

Re: Gnucash 3

You can check what version you have installed in Synaptic, or in a terminal with "apt show vlc". Debian updated to 3.0.2 apparently because the 2....
