I've been trying to install VLC for Debian Stretch and can get the command line to work fine, however I can't get the GUI to open.
I've Googled this a bunch and came across multiple different examples of a similar issue, but so far none of them have been able to help.
The furthest I have gotten so far is I have compiled VLC 3.0.4 from Source I downloaded from VLC. This now works perfectly from the command line, but there are no GUI elements on the video playback (like play and pause buttons) and I can't open VLC from the applications menu, only the command line.
The output of VLC -vvv gives no errors (as far as I can tell) so I'm a little stuck for what to try next.
