HiPerGator 2.0 documentation

On HiPerGator2, all GUI applications must be run within SLURM jobs in the gui partition. Use the Xpra software to connect to the resulting gui sessions, both on the HiPerGator side to start a session and on the client side to connect, disconnect, and re-connect to the GUI application as needed. View detailed instructions for installing and configuring Xpra and using GUI applications on the GUI Programs page.

Load the gui environment module to obtain access to the wrapper shell scripts that make creating and managing SLURM GUI jobs and Xpra connections more convenient. Please see Xpra documentation for more details. A number of sample SLURM job scripts for GUI sessions can be found under the $HPC_GUI_SLURM directory.
