At the time time of installing vlc on my laptop I entered the command in terminal vlc. It returned a message saying:

The program vlc is not currently installed. You can install it by typing sudo apt-get install vlc-nox

But instead, I just typed sudo apt-get install vlc. What is vlc-nox? Is it different from vlc?

More From » vlc


vlc-nox package contains a version of VLC that does not require X and that is
thus suitable for headless servers.

This Package of VLC contains the bare requirements you need to install.
Here is no graphical User Interface included, thus it's also perfectly
suitable for server installations (Streaming Server for example)
Should you decide to install the GUI modules, vlc-noX will stay
installed as a dependency.
