Try disabling VDPAU in the Video Playback settings (XBMC)

If that makes no difference, post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C display

Turns out Google Earth wouldn't load either and the problem was the video card. Upgraded and all good now.

Thanks for your reply.

Hi winnipeg305, well done figuring this out  ;).  In addition to your upgrade, have you also run a dist-upgrade? This intelligently handles changing dependencies with new versions of packages.
Code: [Select]
apt dist-upgrade -yIt is recommended that you reboot your machine after running a dist-upgrade, as there maybe kernel updates.  Thanks for marking the topic as [Solved]  ;).

Thanks very much for this. There were updates and they are now installed. :)
