Welcome in the ROOT forum,

By definition, TBrowser is an interactive GUI allowing to see the content of ROOT files. The “ROOT’s batch mode” is a light mode in which the interactivity (graphics on screen, GUI …) is disabled. So in batch mode TBrowser, which is part of the interactive ROOT, is disabled.

Hi Ijaz ,

Just for info - new web-based RBrowser can be used in batch mode.
Just start ROOT with command root -b --web=server:8800.
After RBrowser is created, one can access it via URL like http://localhost:8800/win1/

See some more info how RBrowser can be used with remote ssh session:
