Hello there, my issue is there’s no VLC notification while it’s playing something in background, that control interface which let you stop/skip music is pretty useful, but it’s missing right now. however everything is ok when playing a video/music in firefox. So i’m only experiencing this with VLC.
In the settings >notifications it is on? Could you verify that?
As a flatpak it not appears in the notification section … But I tested it. I can see the controls you asked for, while clicking on the bell icon beside the clock.
VLC is available as Flatpak and as .rpm (at least on F37) I use it as .rpm and it works.
I checked it in F38 in a VM there it is just available as Flatpak. As I mentioned it worked.
Did you do an upgrade from F37 to F38?
Not true. Fedora 38 does have vlc as an rpm.
# dnf list vlc Last metadata expiration check: 1:29:22 ago on Tue 06 Jun 2023 03:15:13 PM CDT. Installed Packages vlc.x86_64 1:3.0.19-0.3.fc38.1 @rpmfusion-free
I checked in software … there it was not available.
Four eyes see more than two
I’m using .rpm version of VLC on Fedora 38 and for a while everything was OK till suddenly this happened, however
dnf reinstall vlc fixed the issue and I never understood what was the problem in the first place.
I wonder if that is because vlc is from rpmfusion and not from fedora?
You are right … it was on a Virtual Machine and there I probably not installed the rpmfusion.
