VLC won't open, Dragon player crashes every time


Hello, I have ubuntu 11.10 and suddenly one day, vlc stopped working and dragon player won't play dvd's.

Vlc just won't open. I see the little icon on the mouse flash up and down for a few seconds and then it disappears as though I never clicked it.

What can I do? I have uninstalled both and reinstalled both and they still don't work.

-Thanks

Please fire up a terminal, type "vlc &" and tell us which error message you get (if any).

Here is what i get:


~$ vlc &
[1] 4066
~$ VLC media player 1.1.12 The Luggage (revision exported)
Remote control interface initialized. Type `help' for help.
[0xb7000574] main interface: creating httpd


Then it just sits there and does nothing.

I have a different version and get this:

bash-4.1$ vlc &
[1] 10363
bash-4.1$ VLC media player 2.0.1 Twoflower (revision 2.0.1-0-gf432547)
[0x8066190] main libvlc: Lancement de vlc avec l'interface par défaut. Utilisez «*cvlc*» pour démarrer VLC sans interface.

And the GUI is launched OK.

We don't have the same version and I have no idea, sorry.
