Question Starting Xine Fails

I' running Elk Linux, Just install Xine-0.9.22 with all the necessary dependents. When I start xine i get the error :

Key Bindings of "ToggleTvmode and Fileselector " are the same

And Xine will lockup showing the screen and the GUI menu.

I would guess this has to do with configurations. I try looking for xine config, with no luck. Please help

Thank you

Did the opened window gives you a button for close or ok?

You get that "error" because the same key (on your keyboard) is being used for two different things on xine.

If you got the close or ok button on the appeared dialog just click it and go to settings to change the key value either for ToggleTvmode or Fileselector.

If it still doesn't work go to ~/.xine directory and open the file "keymap" search for the text "Fileselector" or "ToggleTvmode" and something like this will appear:

# Open file selector.
FileSelector {
key = o <-- Change this for something else
modifier = control

change the "key" value for something else and it should do it,
