VLC Player does not start, interface error

Clicking the VLC entry in the start menu does "nothing."
Only the taskbar flashes for half a second as if the program opens and then instantly closes.

Result of entering "vlc" into terminal is attached.

Did it run before or is this the first try? Because you could reset the settings... I think you delete a folder somewhere.

first run, just after installation.
I did vlc --reset-config in attempt to reset config but it did not change anything.

You are running prehistorical 4MLinux version, which is not supported anymore. Just make a fresh install, and keep your system up-to-date by running the "zk update" command at least once per 3 months. Your 4MLinux will be fully operational for years (without the need to reinstall it).
