Text is invisible when connecting with NX client to <SOLVED>

Postby matajaz on Sat Mar 23, 2013 5:23 am

Hi,

I installed Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon on an old desktop and wanted to connect to it from my laptop over WIFI.
VNC is working but is too slow so I installed NX server.
First I could not connect with NX client but after updating node.cfg with:
CommandStartGnome = "/usr/bin/gnome-session --session=cinnamon"
I can connect.

Now comes the problem.
All applications in the main meny have icons but no text (or invisible text).
Right clicking on desktop shows a meny without text.
Opening a terminal shows just a black window where I can type and execute commands but not see what I type nor any command output.
Opening gedit and typing some text also is a problem. I do not see what I type.

Opening Firefox and creating this toping is no problem. I can see evertyhing in Firefox window normally.

I have started nxclient both from my windows laptop and from my Linux Mint Desktop but I have the same problem in both cases.

I have installed the following versions of NX:
-rw-r--r-- 1 mathias mathias 6779816 Mar 22 23:40 nxserver_3.5.0-11_i386.deb
-rw-r--r-- 1 mathias mathias 6000968 Mar 22 23:40 nxnode_3.5.0-9_i386.deb
-rw-r--r-- 1 mathias mathias 4388810 Mar 22 23:40 nxclient_3.5.0-7_i386.deb

Are there fonts missing?
What to do?

Help very much appreciated.

Regards
Mathias

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

This might be a long-shot, but have you tried running different video drivers?

Hi Macmesiter,

Thanks for your tip, it is worth looking into.
my gfx chip is on-board (Intel GMA3000) up to 256MB shared memory.

I do not know if there is any better driver to this one other than the one that comes with Mint.

Any idea where I can find updated drivers?

I found a solution! :D

Ticking "Disable render extension", "Disable the backing-store" and "Disable composite extension" in custom settings menu of NX client make all text visible.
