Kicad crashes when I try to open footprint browser - Fedora 22

I just installed Kicad on Fedora 22 from and it crashes when I try to browse a footprint.
It works if I add a local mod file, then I can browse that, but online github pretty repo’en make kicad crash.

This is the output from terminal:
