1) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : no graphics (Message 31837)
Posted 23 Dec 2007 by old_user145064
This is an old thread I know, but this problem is very easy to fix.

You basically have to tell linux that you want to show the graphics. To do this, simply open the terminal and type:

xhost +local:

If you now click on graphics - hey presto - their they are! :-)

I have found though, if you use the 64-bit version of ubuntu, the graphics will appear transparent. This is also \'fixable\' (well sort of anyway). Just download a totally black background picture, open it, then open the graphics over the top of the black background. Not brilliant but it works.

Hope this helps
