Running GUI Apps on SLURM

  1. Login to Pi via X2GO.

  2. Start in your X2GO desktop environment.

  3. In, request an exclusive node to run X Windows job and check which compute node is granted.

    $ salloc -p cpu -N 1 –exclusive; squeue -u whoami –state=running

  4. Login to the compute node, say node300, with X-forwarding enable.

    $ ssh -Y node300

  5. Start your GUI app on the compute node, whose GUI should be displayed within your X2GO environment.


  6. When everything completes, log out from X2GO via System -> Logout.
