Hi, everyone.
I need to install the matlab drive connector on a server where I only have access through the terminal using ssh. Obviously I don't have a graphical interface so when following the installation instructions of the following link (https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlabdrive/ug/install-matlab-drive.html), I get the following error:
(matlabconnectorinstaller:97832): Gtk-WARNING **: 15:33:18.531: cannot open display:
The server has installed Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (GNU/Linux 5.4.0-39-generic x86_64), and the matlab version is R2018a (9.4.0.813654) 64-bit (glnxa64).
So can the matlab drive connector be installed in a silent mode similar to the MATLAB installation? Something similar to https://www.mathworks.com/help/install/ug/install-noninteractively-silent-installation.html
Thanks.

Hi Reimann,
Unfortunately there is no workaround - a graphical installation and setup wizard is required. A VNC server is probably the easiest way to workaround this for now.
