Recently I got access to my college server and I want to set up headless rendering for my blender projects in the server.

The issue is, they have given me a docker image with Ubuntu 19.10. I tried rendering in it, but I faced a lot of issues:

  • rendering with "-b" flag didn't help. It threw "unable to open a display error".
  • I tried setting up x11 forwarding with ssh but there are some problems because of it being a docker image.
  • Compiling from the source code is not possible because the server has a PowerPC 64-bit little endian architecture and there are lots of problem in building the dependencies for compiling the code. I already tried it and failed miserably :(

So, what would be the best method to set up the headless renderer?
