Im running the following envr and attempting to rosrun rqt_bag (or just rqt) and getting the following error

could not connect to display
[xserver DISPLAY IP]:0.0 This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, xcb.

Segmentation fault

Reinstalling ros-noetic-rqt did not work.

  • ROS1
  • noetic
  • WSL2

Im simply trying to viz the inside of a .bag file from MobaXterm. I config'd the setting to allow all remote access attempts. Any help appreciated!

This error doesn't seem to be from rqt. It has to do with your XServer display settings. Are you trying to use this over an SSH terminal? Try setting the display variable export DISPLAY=:0.0
