Hi, can I run magic inside the docker to view the layout. It gives a display error when run inside the docker.

run it outside, and tell it where the tech file is

So it means we cannot use magic present inside the openlane folder? We have to install another magic separately solely for the purpose of viewing the layout generated?

Wouldn't it just be a matter of setting DISPLAY correctly inside the docker (and perhaps chanding permissions outside of it)?

hm, I just tried this: docker run -it -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix -v /home/matt/work/kneesonic:/openLANE_flow -v /home/matt/work/asic-workshop/pdks/:/home/matt/work/asic-workshop/pdks/ -e PDK_ROOT=/home/matt/work/asic-workshop/pdks/ -e DISPLAY=${DISPLAY} -u 1000:1000 openlane:rc2
and magic failed with a different error

it would be cool to have it working from inside. I already had it installed on my system (and am now using klayout more), so it didn't bother me
