Can you run any other basic X program, for example, `xclock' or

These are running totally fine.

Maybe an X11 library is missing.  BTW, tracing with FT2_DEBUG doesn't
help in this case, since the error is not located in the FreeType


You might get more information with

  strace ftview ... &> strace.log

 I am not able to understand this file. I am attaching it with this mail.

You might also have a look into your local `.xsession-errors' file
(for me, it's in my home directory) or the global `Xorg.log' file (see
directory `/var/log' or something similar) for relevant messages.

I could not find these files in my ubuntu 18.04 installation, so I tried
to tweak with the X11 library, and it ended a disaster, I have now
newly installed ubuntu 16.04 and it still is giving the same problem,
I don't know why. I am attaching the `.xsession-errors' and `Xorg.log' files
here. Please help.

Thank you
