TApplication and TEve in standalone application

What is the correct way to initialize a TEveManager in a standalone application?

Currently I am trying

#include <TApplication.h>
#include <TEveManager.h>

int main(int argc, char** argv) {
    TApplication app("App", &argc, argv);



    return 0;

But I get the following error:

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'TEveException'
  what():  TEveManager::Create ROOT is running in batch mode.

How can I run a TEve application in a standalone program?


@matevz can surely help.

This should really work, have you linked in the graphics libs, eg, stuff returned by root-config --evelibs?

Maybe calling app.InitializeGraphics() could help.

If all this doesn’t help, are you able to open other GUI / histograms from that session? Is it a remote one?


Thanks, I am not sure what was happening but now it works. It was wierd because the graphics window from TGeoManager was working while this wasn’t. Probably some silly mistake on my part.
