Can musescore run mscore in no desktop environment

• Jan 15, 2022 - 10:28

I just want musescore to transform midi file to audio file like mp3.
I don't need gui.Can musescore run in no gui mode?
I try to run musescore3 in linux terminal, but it report that
"qt.qpa.xcb: could not connect to display
qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" even though it was found.
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, xcb.

because i don't install desktop in my linux machine.


It can, the GitHib CI actions do exactly that, as does the MuseScore backend on It does need Xvfb (X11 virtual frame buffer?) though
