I am having the same problem on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS using R 3.4.4 and RStudio rstudio-xenial-1.1.453-amd64 that after starting Rstudio the icon only "blinks" but nothing happens/ no window is popping up.
Also found a similar open comment on Github
RStudio is blank upon start, It is broken. #2885
I have been using keras for R with tensorflow backend and the same also in Python. Sometimes RStudio failed to start if I used a python notebook with keras TF right before. But a reboot usually solved the problem.
Today I have tried most of the trouble shooting steps.
- deleted RData, history etc. files
- deleting .rstudio-desktop
- removing and reinstallling Rstudio (R 3.4.4 and RStudio 1.1.453)
- removing R and Rstudio => reinstalling R. 3.4.3 and RStudio (rstudio-1.0.153-amd64.deb), currently this combination of versions is on my computer
rstudio from the terminal gives the following error:
load glyph failed err=6 face=0x108fed0, glyph=2797 load glyph failed err=6 face=0x108fed0, glyph=2797 "Invalid splitter position detected: 11/0" "Invalid splitter position detected: 16/0" "Invalid splitter position detected: 11/0" "Invalid splitter position detected: 16/0" "Invalid splitter position detected: 11/0" "Invalid splitter position detected: 16/0"
Running diagnostics rstudio --run-diagnostics gives this output:

I would really appreciate some help. Cause reinstallilng my whole system is not an option.
