I'm stuck trying to write a python module for the vlc videoplayer on
linux (http://www.videolan.org). I'm using the popen2 module to open a
pipe to the program. If I open the vlc player in a shell it recognizes
that I'm running it from a TTY.
Same command with popen2-4 and the vlc doesn't seem to find a TTY so it
tries to open a gui and fails resulting in ending itself.
So here's my question:
Is there a way to open a pipe in python imitating a TTY or am I doing
something completely wrong?
