    I followed your info and installed VLC using your commands at Terminal, but when i use it to open a movie (dvd) or iso file the VLC splashscreen comes up but immediately vanishes. I am using Linux Mint Nadia 14 (Mate) on a Thinkpad T61.

      Yet VLC 2.0.5 is not officially available from the remi or epel repositories. Once they made available will provide the article, right now its only way to install using source code, but its makes very difficult to install one-by-one dependencies packages and compile. Wait for some more time.
