It has been a long pending issue w.r.t. VLC.
After I play a video, when I close VLC (after playing few videos), it quits to tray (I'm using Manjaro KDE). But, I cannot open a new video and I cannot even quit VLC from tray. I'm not sure if this is an issue with VLC or Manjaro.
I have already read similar threads on various forums including Manjaro, the best answer I found is to Edit VLC application and change the command to "vlc". It worked for some time, but, today, I updated Manjaro and the command went back to default. Of course, when I edit the command back to "vlc" it is working fine. But, I felt this is not a permanent solution to this issue.
Why is this bug still exists after years? I have seen this issue an year before and today too. Any idea what's stopping this bug from being fixed?
