How to have a Headless browser for Armv7 Linux processor

0 votes

I want a headless browser for web scraping. Recently I have tried 3 different headless browsers(Firefox, Chrome, PhantomJS).

But when using phantomJS, it throws this an error Armv7 processor needs GUI.

I tried this on Firefox with geckodriver and on this, it throws an error in the path and connection refused.

So I moved to chrome headless browser with chromedriver, but even this shows the same error as Firefox.

So, I need a proper headless browser for Armv7 processor. Can anyone suggest a solution for that or any other way to proceed further?

You can install the lower version of Selenium and this fixed my issue in a similar case.

$ pip install selenium==2.53.5

Or you can try the below procedure. 

geckodriver v0.19.0 the following versions are recommended:

Firefox 55.0 (and greater) Selenium 3.5 (and greater)

Download the geckodriver from After downloading, extract it and make it executable(in linux chmod +x path/to/geckdriver).

from selenium import webdriver

geckoPath = 'path/to/geckodriver';
browser = webdriver.Firefox(executable_path=geckoPath)
body_html = driver.find_element_by_xpath("/html/body");
print body_html.text;

Hope this is helpful.
