If you don't mind: A friendly hint: Try to avoid the command line as user root!
Do instead use "sudo" to run privileged commands!
To fix your issue above with
1- purge exiting vlc (as normal user)

Code: Select all

# sudo apt-get remove --purge vlc
( remove above the hash-comment sign)
2 - install from with MXPI . vlc 3.0.2 is available from MX test repo. :snail:

the OP is building up a antiX system. nosystemd repo is a give away. this is one reason antiX does not officially support pulling from the mx repos, as apps compiled for our repos do not have the systemd dependencies removed.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

So the output of "inxi -r" would probably be most enlightening!

@keos: I've just installed a good working vlc-3.0.2-1.0nosystemd1 on antiX 17.1 , i.e on antiX-(sid) with only debian testing and antiX sid/testing repo enabeled. You need make sure you have not enable any stretch-repo in /etc/apt/source.d/antix.list & debian.list
Hmme ... @keos : What is actually the idea to have antiX with XFCE installed? ( Or did I mixed up some threads here?) I mean what are you going to achieve with this?
Have you tried all the DE's which antiX comes with?
My favorite DE on antiX is actually Space-IceWM! I don't use another, or at least rarely! I do not miss much from XFCE-DE. ;)

You have sid and stretch repos all combined. Wonder if that is at least part of the problem.

@keos,
Sounds like the old problem.
https://wiki.debian.org/DontBreakDebian

Suggest that you clean a partition and reinstall antiX
with apt or synaptic or package instalar.

Then install whatever you want with the original repos.
Do not add MX repos since they have different goals.

If you want a particular program, install it and then deactivate the repo.
If it doesn't work, then you know it is incompatible and so remove it.
Keep looking. There may be ways of doing what you want,
and you will have to find it by trial and error.

If you add outside repos you must be very careful;
otherwise, it is just a matter of time before something will break.

If you want sid, choose sid at install and add carefully.
sid is fun and educational.
