Comment 106 for bug 341898

Actually /usr/bin/mythfrontend is actually just a script which in turn launches the mythfrontend executable so as a tempoary fix you can edit this script to add the line:

export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS="1"

for example (this is not the complete file, only an example)

#!/bin/sh
# Mario Limonciello, March 2007
# partially merged with startmythtv.sh by Michael Haas, October 2007

export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS="1"

#source our dialog functions
. /usr/share/mythtv/dialog_functions.sh
....

This will allow mythfrontend to work correctly until the main fix is released.
