Ubuntu – No menu option in vlc


I do use vlc player for watching movies and I dont have any idea what happened with my vlc I am not getting any icons or anything not even time bar…its just the video, no preferences nothing…I know we can get it by ctrl + h , but nothing is happening with that as well.

I am not getting any option when I hover over to title bar and when I right click anywhere on the video. How can I solve this issue?

Note : I even uninstalled and installed it again but still the same problem

  • Delete the ~/.config/vlc folder. You will lose your VLC settings but it's likely to undo whatever you've done to lead to this result. You can remove it by running the following in the terminal:

    rm -r ~/.config/vlc
