    Default VLC install: Wants to remove System Tray!

    When I attempt to install VLC, I get break-fixes several times and end up with a warning that the "system tray" will be removed. I need that right? I've broken a lot of Linux systems in my day and I don't want to break this one. Is Kaffeine supposed to be used on Tumbleweed instead of VLC? I canceled the install at the last step. Thanks. Here's what I'm seeing:

    Don't get from videolan get ALL media related stuff from packman.

    remove the videolan repo and do a vendor change to pack man. If you don't know how show us zypper lr -d

    Ignore it.
    These are glitches with the AppStream metadata handling (note that it says that the *application* "System Tray" is going to be removed, but no *package*).
    And unrelated to vlc.

    But yes, I agree with gogalthorp.
    Remove the VideoLAN repo, the same VLC is available from Packman anyway.
    And mixing both repos can (and will) lead to problems.

    Thanks very much for responding. I followed a "FORTY-ELEVEN THINGS TO DO AFTER INSTALLING LEAP" thinking it might work for Tumbleweed. I should have known better but I was fighting with VLC and I was getting desperate. Here's my repo config

    Nrs 7 & 11 are duplicates. Same for 8 & 9. Same for 1 & 6. Better remove the duplicates and the ones you haven't enabled.

    libdvdcss is only needed once it never is updated. No point having it active just slows down the update as does duplicates
