re: Run GUI app in linux docker container on windows host VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Hi Robin,

Thanks for the nice explanation. I was wondering if you or any other reader has ever tried running this on a windowsservercore container on Docker for Windows?

On Ubuntu I got it working the way you described. For certain reasons I am now trying to run Firefox on windowsservercore but without succes.

Thanks,

Arie

 

Hi Arie,

as of my understanding windows server core it not capable of running such GUI applications by default. I researched that and came across this article on medium which has some information on how to add GUI capabilities to windows server core.

But I think more of interest for you would be this youtube video where they try Chrome, Firefox and Opera on Windows Server Core. (v.1709)

Result of video:

  • Google Chrome: Working
  • Opera: Working
  • Mozilla Firefox: Not working
