This question already has an answer here:

I'd like to use the workbench engine on a remote headless server (linux). However, blender crashes giving me the following error:

Unable to open a display

Is this even possible?

PS: Please excuse the rather meaningless tag. However, neither headless, workbench or server exist as tags.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes it does. I also tested EEVEE. However, It gave me the same error. $\endgroup$ – Nos Oct 10 at 17:09

As of today, it is apparently not possible to render on a headless server, when using the Workbench or the EEVEE engine:
