[Bug 686836] Re: gnome apps won't start via remote desktop
I have also seen this failure and it only occurs during a remote
For me, changing the desktop theme did not allow gnome-terminal to
start. I was using "Radiance" when I first encountered the issue.
Switching to "Ambiance" did not help.
The problems occur in a remote session, using vncserver, not otherwise.

gnome apps won't start via remote desktop
Status in “gnome-colors” package in Ubuntu:
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 there.
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.
