Graphical User Interface (GUI) of the product will not work in Linux if there is no XRender extension

This article applies to:

  • Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Advanced Server (Agent for Linux)
  • Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Server for Linux (Standalone)
  • Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Advanced Server - Virtual Edition (Agent for Linux)


  1. You are trying to start Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 under a Linux operating system that does not have the XRender extension;
  2. The product does not start.


GUI of Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 works only on the Linux operating systems that have the XRender extension.


As a workaround, you still can use the command line interface (trueimagecmd tool) of the product or run Acronis Backup & Recovery Management Console with 'noxrender' parameter: 

# acronis_console -noxrender

(!) Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 GUI will be very slow with the noxrender parameter and this parameter is available starting from Build 11639 only.

More information

There is no way to improve GUI work when using the above parameter.
