We assist a university with a Linux cluster, running Red Hat 7.5
The university wished to upgrade from RStudio Desktop Open Edition 1.1.447 to something newer.
While the install went fine (after building GLX 1.3.3), the users are unable to get newer versions of RStudio Desktop 1.2.x or higher to work with X forwarding, either with FastX, or forwarding via Putty to Xming.
These newer versions do work fine in VNC sessions running on cluster nodes, but the users really need to run them with X-forwarding.
Here is the output when trying version 1.4.1717
qt.qpa.xcb: X server does not support XInput 2
failed to get the current screen resources
[3541:4471:0825/161449.024645:ERROR:gl_surface_glx_qt.cpp(141)] GLX 1.3 or later is required.
[3541:4471:0825/161449.028012:ERROR:gl_ozone_glx_qt.cpp(57)] GLSurfaceGLXQt::InitializeOneOff failed.
The X11 connection broke: I/O error (code 1)
XIO: fatal IO error 2 (No such file or directory) on X server "localhost:10.0"
after 404 requests (399 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
Note that this is with X-forwarding via Putty to Xming on my laptop, and other X programs (Matlab, etc.) work fine with this setup.
Is there some solution for this issue?
