have installed XRDP on Up2 board running Ubuntu 16.04 and my acceleration on the GPU works fine when I connect a monitor and run it locally. It also works fine when I run it remotely so long as a monitor is connected. Once the monitor is disconnected I get self.exec_net =

self.ie.load_network(network=self.net,device_name=self.plugin)

File "ie_api.pyx", line 178, in

openvino.inference_engine.ie_api.IECore.load_network

File "ie_api.pyx", line 187, in

openvino.inference_engine.ie_api.IECore.load_network

RuntimeError: Failed to create plugin

/opt/intel/openvino_2020.3.194/deployment_tools/inference_engine/lib/intel64/libclDNNPlugin.so

for device GPU

Please, check your environment

[CLDNN ERROR]. clGetPlatformIDs error -1001

Is the GPU being disabled when no monitor is detected? if so, how can I get around this issue?
