I have seen this complaint before, and it turned out to be due to a line


in the master settings file (/etc/xboard.conf), which packagers for some distros seem to have added. Removing that line should solve the problem. I have no idea why packagers would wreck XBoard before distributing it; perhaps you should submit a bug report about that to the applicable Linux distro.

If you install XBoard from source, from the tar ball supplied at GNU Savannah (or from git),
you should not have this problem.
