Possibilities of opening a display inside a docker container

We have an application that needs a display to install and run in a docker container. I am exploring ways to install this application by adding a display inside the container. Any suggestions about how to set up a native display for the container.

Afaik there’s nothing like this. All sollutions I’ve seen so far was a full distro with xrdp or vnc enabled.

So you’d build your container, open a vnc connection and fire up your the GUI-Installer …
If you go that way, bare in mind to “commit” the container after you installed your app - or your work is gone.
