    Go to the control center and change
    kde components - session Manager
    window manager = compiz
    apply

    *it is advisable to not use auto login
    so you might want to change that in Yast users section.

    Ctrl-Alt-Backspace

    With desktop effects, especially compiz, it is not unusual to experience
    various issues - though I can't say I recall this.

    So you have compiz enabled. And when you click VLC it starts 2
    instances of it, and when you try to play a file it quits.

    Open VLC and go to preferences - video section
    Display output = X11 video output

    try that and see if it help.

    Also, let us know what version of VLC, is it from Packman or VLC.
    Ideally, you should use Packman's
