"Cannot open display" error on a GIMP batch script.

October 13, 2019 259 views


For an application I need to run simple batch scripts using GIMP. Once the command is executed, the error I get is:

Cannot open display:

It seems that even using the –no-interface flag it requires a display.

What might be the best way of solving this with minimal impact on CPU/Mem usage? I do not need to personally see the display, it should only run for this batch script.

Thank you!

Hey, @PSNick

I can see that you’re running this on Ubuntu droplet/server. May I ask if you’ve checked if X11Forwarding is enabled in the sshd config?

X11Forwarding yes

Let me know how it goes.
