If I use my CentOS 7 computer everything works fine but when I connect remotely (I have tried connecting from Ubuntu and Windows xrdp clients) everything works fine too except Matlab which shows a blank screen.

enter image description here

It is a visual bug because I click on the blank screen and It does stuff. I can't understand why this only happens when connecting remotely. I have tried using gnome and xfce desktop environments and nothing changes.

Also I have other Ubuntu computers which I connect remotely and Matlab works fine there.

Changing the colors depth of the remote session to High Color (16 bit) fixes it. Link

In windows using the default RDP client was enough, in Kubuntu I had to use Remmina, with KRDC it didn't work, even changing to 16 bits color
