Most of you might think installing VLC on Kali Linux is a headache but really it is not true. It is as simple as writing just two line of commands and you are done.
1. Open up the terminal and type these commands in it.
[email protected]:~# apt-get install vlc
If you are getting some errors like “can’t find lock” then you can just remove these locks as given in the error listed. For eg
/var/cache/apt/archives/lock and just type this code to remove the lock
rm lock make sure you are in a correct directory.
2. By default, you are not allowed to run VLC as root, to fix this just copy paste these commands into the terminal.
[email protected]:~# sed -i s/geteuid/getppid/g /usr/bin/vlc
That’s it you are done and you can check that VLC is working by typing
vlc into the terminal.
