Have you considered filing this as a bug to the VLC team? I'm sure they're interested in what's causing the issue.

comment Cannot use scp on Mac OS X
Have you tried replacing . with the name of the file? e.g., scp me@192.168.1.10:/home/me/file.zip file.zip ?

comment Vim to replace Vi
The environment variables EDITOR and VISUAL will take precedence when you hit v over the default vi command. So, in your .bashrc export EDITOR or VISUAL with vim as its value; e.g., export EDITOR=vim and export VISUAL=vim in your .bashrc

comment How to change default vi alias in Fedora 14?
just executing the file does not make those changes available in your terminal. If I export a variable in the .bashrc and I execute the script instead of sourcing it, then that exported variable disappears after the script finishes executing. See superuser.com/questions/176783/… stackoverflow.com/questions/1107808/… and stackoverflow.com/questions/1880735/…

comment How to change default vi alias in Fedora 14?
Not quite the same thing. You have to source the file (instead of running it with ~/bashrc on its own), otherwise the changes will not be reflected in the terminal. So, either do . ~/.bashrc or source ~/.bashrc.

comment Setting up dual monitors (limited access)
@DalexL you can look it up in your Device Manager, if you can get to it or if you can run GPU-Z, then that will tell you.
