Hello, I am using Arch Linux and I installed ros-melodic-desktop-full. However when I try to run rqt_graph i have the following errors.

$ rosrun rqt_graph rqt_graph

Has anyone any idea what's going wrong? Other rqt_* commands runs fine.

I met the same problem today.

There is a simple solution for you. Type this in a terminal: sudo dot -c

I think this should work.
