[Bug 686836] [NEW] gnome apps won't start via remote desktop


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Ubuntu 10.10

Apps that start fine on the console will not start when you connect via
Remote Desktop.

Examples: gnome-terminal, "add or delete button" in users-admin

Unfortunately, no errors messages are shown (reminiscent of MS Windows)
and there are no clues in files in /var/log.

I managed to start an xterm and then tried to run "gnome-terminal" from

Here's the error  message:
gnome-terminal: /build/buildd/cairo-1.10.0/src/cairo-image-surface.c:1294: _pixel_to_solid: Assertion `!"reached"' failed.
