When starting R2020a from my CentOS 8 machine, I get nothing but a blank screen. I see the splash screen, but a window then pops up (presumably the gui) and it's only white. When maximizing it looks like there's something there, but it looks transparent. It's using opengl to render. it is a gnome-desktop. I have seen hints that disabling some fancy desktop animations (via unity?) help, but I can't find out how to do that on CentOS 8 (might only be ubuntu?). I tried setting the AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit ENV variable, no change.
I can get the GUI to render via ssh, which means it's the desktop that is getting in the way somehow. Any other thoughts?
