    There is a bug in kde
    AFAIK it has not been fixed.
    Things to try: If you use Oxygen theme in kde try changing it

    To open a file in vlc, do it from file manager, right click open with vlc

    does that help?

    I have the exact same problem, and yes right clicking from Konqueror will launch vlc normally.

    Since I only ever open files that way with vlc, probably why I never noticed it.
    Thanks for the confirm @ionmich

    Thank you very much!
    I search a topic in 4rum VLC.it say "Followed the link and found, that the bug has been fixed already. Updated KDE from 4.6.0 to 4.6.1 and the problem has gone."

    I have the same problem. Is there any way to avoid this problem without updating to a beta version of VLC?
