Text is not visible on FC4 client 12 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 0
Hi,

I have recently installed Go-Global client version 2.1.5.732 software on Fedora Core 4 to connect to a Linux host running RHEL 3 (host version is also 2.1.5.732). While the client software seems to be starting up fine on Fedora Core 4 I have noticed that when I open an xterm none of the text is shown. I can type and execute commands but no text is shown. I also use another application called DMGR and no text is shown in the popup/pulldown menus. However text is show properly in thunderbird or firefox.

I realise the client software might not be supported on Fedora Core 4 (BTW the client software works fine on RHL9) but other users in my company have also noticed text dissapearing from time to time from their popup/pulldown menus when using the Windows client. Unfortunately the problem on Windows is intermittent and I haven't been able to reproduce the problem consistently.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

For those reading along, this is a known issue. A workaround is available by changing the DISPLAY variable to
Code:

<hostname>:0.0
or
Code:

localhost:0.0
prior to launching the Xclient.
