Installing xvfb-run and XORG on Centos 6.X

Alright, let’s take a quick look at installing xvfb-run on CentOS. I’m currently doing all sorts of experiments and installing all sorts of utilities. With xvfb you can do a lot of cool stuff

Xfvb will give you a X server on CentOS that you can run without a display. On a sidenote, there’s a bunch of cool stuff you can do without a display. A lot of programs can be automated. For example a headless browser can be used for web scraping purposes without actually opening the browser via a GUI – this saves a lot of resources and is a lot faster.

Steps To Take

Anyway, let’s take a quick look how to get this installed

1. Enter yum install xorg-x11-server-Xvfb if you’re logged in as root. Not logged in as root? Enter sudo yum install xorg-x11-server-Xvfb And then provide the root password

2. Confirm with a y and the installation will proceed

3. In a best-case scenario this will install all dependencies – if you get a dependency error, try to google the error message and fix the errors one by one

4. Enter whereis xvfb to check the path – it SHOULD be installed in /usr/bin/xvfb-run and Xvfb
