XServer for GUI apps on BalenaOS Host


#1

Does BalenaOS core includes a XServer for running GUI applications or these files has to be installed manually?

Thanks

Hey @rlev, you would need to install and start the xserver manually, a good example of this is: https://github.com/balena-io/resin-electronjs

Hi @CameronDiver

In the repo you pointed out looks like the xserver is installed in the application container (Dockerfile.template).
I was thinking about an approach where the application container use the XServer from the balenaos host.
Does this make sense?
