If I try to start Cheese from the Gnome launcher, it never actually starts (even though it's still in the process list). If I start cheese from the terminal, it launches right away.

Additional info:
* package version(s)

Fresh install of gnome and cheese from today:
gnome-shell: 3.28.1-1
cheese: 3.28.0-1

* config and/or log files etc.

No custom config.

Steps to reproduce:

Install the `gnome` group and try to run Cheese from the applications list.

I cannot reproduce the issue; cheese open well from the launcher (gnome-shell)
Can we close the bug?
