has anyone ever seen an issue with blank menu's in
schematic and layout when using cadence via NX. We have tried adjusting
every NX configuration setting possible but of course the solution may
be a combination of settings that we have not tried yet
Have you called Cadence support? What Virtuoso release are you running?
Which version of Virtuoso are you running. I use NX now and then here in Cadence. And we have a few customers using it successfully.
If you are running on Windows XP, you probably want to install some fonts to see if they help.

i have discussed it with a guy i know at a cadence but i've not logged it officially yet.
The version of cadence is: IC5141_USR6
The setup for using NX is:
1) NX is fired up from an ubuntu 8.04 laptop
2) The machine on which the NX is running is gentoo linux
3) From that gentoo linux machine i ssh onto a 2nd machine which is redhat linux 4.0
4) From that redhat machine i run cadence
2 out of 3 of your systems (gentoo and ubuntoo) are unsupported platforms. I don't have them here to try.
My simple example of RHEL 3 NX into RHEL 4 and running IC5.1.41_USR6 showed no problems with any menu.
You might want to simplify your set up like ssh directly into your RH 4.0 box to see if you can isolate the problem.
I am sorry I can't be of more help.
