How to run AutoIT under ubunt server 16.04 without GUI

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to run my selenium scripts via Jenkins on Ubunt server 16.04 without GUI.

And before to open a web page it requires make an windows authentication. I created for Windows with AutoIT and it works good but now I have to execute via Jenkins on Ubunt server, and got the following error:

Using deprecated data structure for setting timeouts
java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "/usr/share/GlobalStagingERP/global.staging.erp/authentification/WindowsAuthenticationFireFoxCodeExample.exe": error=13, Permission denied

Also I tried 'https://username:password@my_url/' but it didn't work and got a fatal error.

This is an example how I'm using AutoIT script to handle authentication in window:

WinWaitActive("Authentication Required","")
MouseClick("left",331, 288,1)

But how can I do it the same action using python or bush to linux can handle authentication or maybe other workaround?

Best regards

Normally AutoIt does not work on linux, but I see that you are using wine.
I'm not a specialist in this field (AutoIt+WineOnLinux).

So that was not you sad, let's just say that I also look forward to some answers ;)

export DISPLAY=:0.0
