I do not believe I ever saw the errors Masrur posted.  I believe this is all
I have done to my system to get Mathematica to work correctly. 

$ touch ~/.Xdefaults

$ echo $MMA_ADDONS 

$ echo $MMA_APPS 

$ cat ~/bin/mma
pushd $MMA_CODE
export CLASSPATH=\

xrdb ~/.Xdefaults

nohup mathematica\
 -font 10x20\
 -geometry 800x600+80+60\
 -singleLaunch $@ > ~/.Mathematica/mma.log &
########### EOF ####################

$ chmod 755 ~/bin/mma
$ ~/bin/mma

I recently reinstalled Mathematica, so everything in the install directory
which I might have modified should be back to default settings.  I do not
have an XMathematica under /usr/X11R6.
$ grep -r XMathematica *  2> /dev/null
$ grep -r Xmathematica *  2> /dev/null

The 2> /dev/null just sends the "permission denied" errors to /dev/null
