Best step is to start mythfrontend from a terminal, or with logging
enabled, and look for error messages.
You could guess it might be a theme or painter issue, and try
mythfrontend -O themepainter=qt
mythfrontend -O themepainter=OpenGL
or try to force one of the generic themes
But you might have an Xorg problem, or file permissions or .....
.. so best look at the logfile.
