[IDV #XBM-123122]: Fwd: Error IDV amb Xvfb



Dear VÃctor,

In order to better diagnosis this problem, I would like to know if this problem 
is isolated to the IDV. For the hardware in question, is it possible to run 
Xvfb successfully in any scenario? For example, on this computer, can you a web 
browser (e.g. firefox) with xvfb-run? 

Also, I was not clear from your request, but Xvfb is not the only avenue for 
the IDV to run in offscreen mode. If the computer in question has graphics 
environment (i.e. graphics card, monitor), you do not need to use Xvfb.

Best Wishes,

Unidata IDV Support
