I'm running Debian/Buster with a Plasma 5 desktop. After I close a VLC session, the program continues to lurk in the process list until I send it the Kill signal. This is annoying because VLC stops the screen saver / session locker from kicking in while it is active so I have to bring up the System Activity monitor to check for and kill all the VLC processes.

Note that just ending the process doesn't work. I need to send the Kill signal.
Go to Preferences -> Interface -> Show settings -> All ---> Interface -> Uncheck 'Run as deamon process'.

Not checked in my case. VLC has a bug.
