Sia-UI doesn't open. Ubuntu Server.

  • Im running Ubuntu Server 16.04. Im using tightvncserver and xfce for a remote desktop environment because I am still new to the Linux command line (therefore not comfortable running Sia headless yet). I downloaded 1.3.0 and unzipped to its own folder. But nothing happens when I try to execute Sia-UI by double clicking the icon.

    Previously I was running Ubuntu Desktop + xfce and tightvncserver and Sia-UI worked perfectly from a remote connection. I suspect that Ubuntu Server doesn't have all the components needed to run Sia-UI, but I have no idea where to start. If someone can point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.

    I know I could probably just run xubuntu and be done with it, but this is more of an educational experience for me.


  • I figured it out. Had to install ubuntu-virt-server package.
