ric at Iam:~$ apt-cache policy vlc
   Installed: 2.0.1-4
   Candidate: 2.0.1-4
   Version table:
  *** 2.0.1-4 0
         500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise/universe amd64 
         100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
ric at Iam:~$

But, I am not seeing behavior from full screen as described. When I 
toggle full screen, all of the menus go away within seconds if I either 
move my mouse from that screen or just don't jiggle the mouse. I'm 
seeing video and nothing else. Ric
