Re: RenderBadPicture error while running Mathematica 6 on Linux

Hi dear group,

I get hundreds of these messages since I upgraded to Fedora Linux 9 (for
x86_64 - architecture). Additionally the fonts are only partally shown
in the Frontend (FontPaths are set in xorg.conf and xset q confirms they
are recognized).

Mathematica 6 worked well with Fedora 8.

 The same messages and symptoms ('special' characters like brackets and
'+' display but letters and digits do not) on Ubuntu 8.04 x86_64.

Mathematica 5 works fine in both cases.

openSuse 10.3  + Mathematica 6 works perfectly, but I did a fresh
install on a small partition and do not want to migrate from Fedora to
openSuse (but maybe I will do. Fedora 9 came without 3D-support (at
least for my ATI-Radeon based card); unbelievable these days, isn't it?).

I really can not figure out, why this happens and any idea is welcome.


TIA,
Peter
