Re: RenderBadPicture error while running Mathematica 6 on Linux

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
