I was using flair with ubuntu 19.04, installed from the repository and it was working fine.
However, I just upgraded to 19.10 and now flair no longer starts. I am connecting to the machine through ssh.
I have removed and reinstalled flair but no luck. I always get the following message.
X Error of failed request: BadLength (poly request too large or internal Xlib length error)
Major opcode of failed request: 138 (RENDER)
Minor opcode of failed request: 20 (RenderAddGlyphs)
Serial number of failed request: 863
Current serial number in output stream: 874
I tried reinstalling the graphics driver and some fonts that I found online as a potential solution to this problem but did not work.
F.y.i. Other graphical environments applications work through the same ssh connection (e.g. gvim, glxgears, xeyes etc).
Any help is appreciated.
