I believe you need to run it inside a graphical environment (gnome, kde, xfce, blackbox, etc..) Also, is a good approach to run things as a less privileged user.

  • was the gnome environment started by root or by another user? run a new instance of gnome-terminal and issue the command: $ id

  • Started gnome as root but if you run vlc, it says " VLC is not supposed to run as root. Sorry." And if you change user under the same gnome, it gives out the same error. Aug 24, 2018 at 5:57
