I have tried the starting Mathematica with env XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 mathematica However, the fonts are not very clear. Another solution which works nicely on Ubuntu Hardy is to delete the libraries Path to Mathematica/SystemFiles/Libraries/Linux/libQtCore.so.4 and libQtGui.so.4 Then create symlinks to the same libs on the system, so in Ubunutu sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libQtCore.so.4 PathtoMathematica/SystemFiles/Libraries/Linux/libQtCore.so.4 and the same for libQtGui.so.4 If you are on 64 bit the directory Linux would be replaced with Linux-x86-64 More info on this bug/solution can be found at https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/197163
