Headless Setup on Ubuntu

I was trying to set up the desktop version on my virtual machine and got an error “desktop-file-validate is missing.” Can it possible to set up this on a headless server.

Hi Kamaldeep,

You should not be needing proxy to access DLS running on AWS instance.

Did you try using your http://<AWS instance IP>:8880/app (allow port 8880 to 8890 in firewall)

In any case, the issue is probably because only 8880 port is opened. Once you enable other ports in that range, then both the issues should get resolved.

regarding logs, you can use docker logs -f (docker ps will show the container id).
