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.)
