Comment (by cabpa):

 On my system, i experienced applications not launching and returning
 Clutter errors like empathy, totem and cheese because I installed all
 metapackages including NVIDIA even if I do not have an nvidia card. Then I
 search in the internet and found solutions from forums to uninstall and
 reinstall nvidia, xorg and mesa driver. I uninstall nvidia from Package
 Manager Basic view but still the problem exist. I go to the Advanced view
 and tried to search with nvidia keyboard, i found that there are still
 nvidia packages in Advance View. So i uninstall all the remaining nvidia
 packages in Advance View. Then I restarted and tried launching empathy,
 totem and and suprisingly they launched successfully. Do the nvidia
 driver/packages creating a mess on the system in PC-BSD 10?
