Comment 1 Bill 2015-11-23 08:26:34 EST
I just noticed that if I log in using gnome on wayland session then gthumb and vlc work fine. So problem is only happening with gnome on X session.
Comment 2 Bill 2015-11-23 17:59:05 EST
I Have temporarily got rid of the problem by disabling updates-testing and running dnf distro-sync. I will re-enable updates-testing and update all the things that are unlikely to be a problem to try and then determine the problem package.
Comment 3 Bill 2015-11-24 18:53:14 EST
I have all the updates-testing packages re-installed and the problem hasn't come back. However I notice that one package update that was in updates-testing yesterday, seems to have disappeared, namely xorg-x11-drv-intel. My suspicion is that this was causing the problem.
