[SOLVED] VLC doesn't start

Good morning all guys, I'm a new Arch user and I am really liking this distro, but... I have a little problem: VLC doesn't start!
I installed it with pacman with no problems, but when I try to launch it, nothing appens.. What can i do? Thanks.

Re: [SOLVED] VLC doesn't start

Launch it from a terminal and read the output.

Also, post the version you are using and your kernel version (uname -a).

Re: [SOLVED] VLC doesn't start

And try installing projectm, see if anything changes. There's a weird issue where some people have to have it installed and others don't.

Edit: After your post, nevermind. It appears you missed the optional deps.

Re: [SOLVED] VLC doesn't start

Pacman told you about them when you installed vlc. You can use pacman -Qi <package> to get info about an installed package, including the optional deps.
