Lets you control Xvfb virtual frame buffer X11 server with each build. It starts Xvfb before the build starts, and stops it with the build. This is very useful if your build requires X11 access, for instance runs tests that require GUI.
New: Use Let Xvfb choose display name option with Xvfb that supports displayfd option to choose the display number automatically by Xvfb.
On the job configuration page, enable the "Start Xvfb before the build, and shut it down after." under the Build Environment.
If you want to customize defaults click on Advanced... button.
Jenkins administrator needs to define the Xvfb tool installation.
The directory in which to find Xvfb executable can be left blank, then PATH is searched to find the executable.
