Category Packages: Extra
Status Closed
Assigned To No-one

Severity High

Steps to reproduce:
1) Start a video in VLC
2) Make it fullscreen
3) Hover over the control panel (e.g. to jump forward)
4) Once the mouse is over the control panel, the X Server crashes and I have to login again

Bug investigation so far:
Might have to do something with the transparency effect of the control panel (only a guess). journalctl tells me the errors attached. Apparently a "" is missing. I searched for a package that includes it via pkgfile and I found & installed nvidia-utils. This did unfortunately not change/solve the problem.

Step 1: get rid of anything related to vdpau. Intel doesn't support it.

The issue here seems to be Xwayland, so I guess you're running on Wayland?

Alright, I uninstalled mesa-vdpau, but I can't uninstall libvdpau since ffmpeg, ffmpeg2.8, gstreamer0.10-bad-plugins and mplayer depend on it.

Yes, I'm running on wayland.

Shall I report this bug somewhere else? I inserted it here because I didn't know which part of my system produces the error.

Forgot to mention: The problem still exists after uninstalling mesa-vdpau.
