I just ran   totem --debug
First line:
load_plugins: skipping unreadable plugin directory
After all the .so plugins loaded.
init class succeeded
gnome_vfs init input_class
params.c:OpenConfFile() - unable to open configation file
       No such file or directory  (repeated)
Video_out_xv; Xv extention is present but I could not find a
usable yuv12 port.
Looks like your graphics driver does not support Xv?!
Last line:
         **message: couldn't initialise lirc.
