given a score based on how well

p0deje/display — version 0.3.1 Nov 2nd 2014


Module allows to connect to remote machine display using x11vnc + Xvfb.

Created for easy workflow of Selenium tests in Vagrant.


Add to your manifest:

class {'display':}

Now, forward default VNC port to your host:

# Vagrantfile
Vagrant.configure('2') do |config| :forwarded_port, guest: 5900, host: 5900

Reload your VM box.

You can now see your tests running on VM by connecting with any VNC viewer to localhost:5900.

You can also use SSH tunnel instead of port forwarding as some clients forbid connecting to localhost.


You can configure display, resolution and color depth:

class {'display':
  display => 99,   # default is 0
  width   => 1024, # default is 1280
  height  => 768,  # default is 800
  color   => 24,   # default is "24+32" (i.e. 32-bit)


Supports RedHat and Debian families.
