Hello all, on 14.04 vlc is refusing to start. When run from cli I get a
segmentation fault error. when run with the -vv option I get this error
just before the core dump.

I have purged vlc, twice. The second time I rm -rf .local/share/vlc
/usr/share/vlc /usr/lib/vlc then re-installed. Still the above error.
vlc worked on my system about a week ago until I changed from default
look to the skin which came with it, just trying something new. vlc
didn't work right so I changed it back to default and it worked. I think
vlc received an update since then so I can't pin point any probable
My system is an Acer Travelmate 7520 AMD 64. I am venturing a guess
there is a permission issue with the referenced files above so will
pursue that avenue when I get back from work. If anyone has some
insight or direction it would be appreciated. Search has not found
anything useful yet but will continue to search later tonight.
