I'm running Debian unstable and found Totem not working.
When I start i through the menu (Applications->Multimedian->Totem Movie
I get a box in my Window List saying: "Starting Totem Movie Player".
After a few seconds the box dissapears. I can see the totem process is
running in the background but no Totem interface :(
This happens for all users and I have tried to locate Totem
configuration files in my home dir and deleted them.
mplayer (which I have installed from apt-get.org) works just fine.
I have been using XFree 4.3 packages from apt-get.org but downgraded to
the packages in unstable (NOT experimental). Dunno how I can make sure
that ALL old things are gone.
Though this hasn't helped :(
I have a Nvidia gfx card for which I have compiled my own driver with
the Nvidia installer downloaded from Nvidias homepage (dunno if this
could have anything to do with it)
I can make a strace but I didn't want to paste one into the email (the
email is long enought allready ;-) )
Just say so if it would help you (or if I can do anything else)
Hope this can help
