Cinnamon is having issues loading, there is a segfault error in dmesg | tail

cinnamon[2325]: segfault at 0 ip 00007f24c2e901c9 sp 00007ffd7ed50c20 error 4 in libmuffin-cogl-0.so

XFCE loads fine, and lightdm launches.

I re-merged libmuffin but it did not fix the issue.

I'm not sure where else to look.

I'm using vmware video driver in virtualbox, trying to launch cinnamon software rendered version. Kernel version is 5.2.11

Maybe I should have tried to see if opengl was working ...

glxinfo showed it was not, and the problem was my opengl profile was set to nvidia

So I used eselect opengl set xorg-x11 to fix and now it's cinnamon is working.

KDE/plasma also loads now, whereas it did not before for similar reasons I'm sure.

KDE/plasma does have an issue with fonts not showing up and various artifacts and glitches

I'm going to try turning off 3d acceleration as maybe that's the cause ... in any case, the issue I reported is resolved.

*Issue was the 3d acceleration, but I found I could enable that again if I picked another video card option other than what was the default in virtualbox. For some reason vmsvga was default, but I switched it to vboxsvga and it works now.
