GUI in Executing KNIME using CLI

I want to run workflows on a unix based server using KNIME_BATCH mode. But I don’t understand why do we need GUI related libraries when running a workflow using CLI ?
I had to install libgbm-dev and libxkbcommon-x11-0 then it worked!

Is there any alternative solution (excluding KNIME server)?


  • Ubuntu server 20.04.6 LTS
  • KNIME Analytics Platform 5.1.2

knime -nosplash -application org.knime.product.KNIME_BATCH_APPLICATION
