Xrender initialization failed

Post by jhecker » Tue Jun 24, 2014 4:43 pm

New installation of Lubuntu 13.04. Installed the products fine; they work perfectly at home in front of my screen. Now accessing my system via (free)RDP. Other GUI products are working fine; when trying to start Textmaker I consistently get the error 'Xrender initialization failed'. Where should I start troubleshooting? X works, or XFCE4 wouldn't be running.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Jared Hecker

Does it help to deactivate SHM and XIM in Tools=>Options=>System?

Hello,

I have the same problem with a Debian 7 Xfce 4.8 installation. I used a screen session to run TextMaker for disabling Xrender, XIM and SHM and reboot the system. When I try to use TextMaker via xrdp, I always have the message "XRender initialization failed" but LibreOffice Writer works well.
Here is my config file :

Are you starting TextMaker via the command line (textmaker12)?

No, I started with the Textmaker icon from the desktop. When I start with the command line "textmakerfree" (I use the free version), I have the same Critical System Error message = "XRender initialization failed" even as root user. I join a screenshot from the message.

Thank you.

I will refer that problem to our developers. Just one more question: Does PlanMaker or Presentations start or is there the same error message?

There is the same error message with PlanMaker and Presentations.

Thank you.
