RStudio and X2Go

After a recent system upgrade (to Linux Mint LMDE), I was no longer able to run RStudio through the remote desktop application X2Go. It turns out that this is due to a problem with the Qt libraries (see this website). As suggested here, I just deleted all the Qt libraries used by RStudio:

sudo rm  /usr/lib/rstudio/bin/libQt* 

and all was well. (NB, the specific link to these files will vary depending on the flavor of Linux you use.)

**EDIT: If you are installing this on pure Debian (I just confirmed this with a new Jessie install) you will need to install appropriate libraries too:

sudo aptitude install libqtwebkit4
