Dear Maintainer,

when totem is invoked, it yields a GDK error and crashes immediately.

It also says something about libGL but I don't think they are relevant to this crash
because they also happen for VLC as well, which looks working correctly.

The error message is as follows:

$ totem
libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

(totem:6090): Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'totem' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'GLXBadContext'.
  (Details: serial 211 error_code 169 request_code 154 (GLX) minor_code 6)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment
   variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
Trace/breakpoint trap
