1. Software Requirements¶
The interactive Desktop app requires a Desktop Environment be installed on the nodes that the batch job is meant to run on, NOT the OnDemand node.
The following desktops are currently supported:
- Xfce Desktop 4+
- Mate Desktop 1+ (default)
- Gnome Desktop 2 (currently we do not support Gnome 3)
Do NOT install the Desktop Environment on the OnDemand node. The above Desktop Environments are ONLY for the compute or login nodes you intend on launching Desktops on within batch jobs.
