Trouble getting VLC installed properly and working

<< < (3/3)

billtour:
Attempting to play a commercial video (works in Windows' VLC), video window flashes on screen but does not play.

Tried "sudo apt remove VLC".  Got the following:

Removing vlc (3.0.9.2-1) ...
Setting up eveusb (10.0.0) ...
/usr/bin/env: ‘python’: No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing package eveusb (--configure):

Errors were encountered while processing:
 eveusb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)


Also, tried "sudo apt install VLC" after attempted removal and got the following:

The following NEW packages will be installed:

eveusb seems to be the "common denominator".

Should I try removing and installing eveusb?
