Issues with 2019.5 on fedora 33

Tim Hawkins
I recently upgraded to Fedora 33, and since then I have been unable to use Openscad. 

The machine is a AUS ROG GL752G with 64GB RAM, 2.2TB SSD and  and nvidia GeForce GTX 965M

Its running fedora 33, Gnome, with NVIDIA proprietary Drivers loaded, hence its running Xorg and not Wayland. 

Openscad has always run perfectly well on this rig until I upgraded to fedora 33. 

I have attached some screenshots and the output of lshw,  has anybody seen this issue before? 

I have downloaded an AppImage of 2019-05 and it runs fine.

Fwd: Issues with 2019.5 on fedora 33

Tim Hawkins
It turns out it is the use of XOrg on F33, i found a mechanism that allows me to run Gonome wayland server with the NVIDIA proprietary driver, and now OpenScad works fine.

So it appears that the packaged Openscad in the fedora-33 dnf repo is having problems with XOrg, not sure why running it as an AppImage made them go away
