    I’m using NoMachine to connect to a remote server with Linux centoOS installed (GNOME desktop), but I’m experiencing some resolution problems. Indeed I see some squares instead of letters into some applications (Synopsys in attached example). Sometimes it happens on the whole application, sometimes only in part of it (as the figure attached demonstrates).

    If the problem regards the whole application I can fix it changing the resolution and then coming back to the previous one, but I suppose it is not the right way to solve it. Moreover it not always works!

    Is this problem known? If so, how to fix it?


    My computer is a mid2012 Macbook pro and I’ve got the latest Nomachine version.

    Thanks in advance,



    Hello Andreeeeee,

    I guess you got this problem in sessions of kind “virtual desktop”.

    It could be due to the font path not completely set up in the NoMachine virtual display server.

    To check the current font path, run a terminal emulator in the virtual desktop and type the command xset q.

    In order to temporarily append elements to the font path, use the command xset fp+ <new element>, e.g. xset fp+ /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc.

    If you find the missing paths and they fix the issue, you can set up the default font path to the value you need using key DisplayServerExtraOptions in node.cfg, e.g.
    DisplayServerExtraOptions "-fp /usr/share/X11/fonts/encodings:/usr/share/X11/fonts/encodings/large:/usr/share/X11/fonts/misc:/usr/share/X11/fonts/Type1:/usr/share/X11/fonts/util"


    Hello graywolf,

    Thank you very much, it works for me!
