I'm using ROS Noetic on a Jetson Nano. I'm trying to display the scan data from my RPlidar A2 connected to my Jetson Nano on Rviz on a remote pc. I correctly followed the multiple pc tutorial http://wiki.ros.org/ROS/Tutorials/Mul... . I run the view_rplidar.launch on the Jetson Nano and I'm able to see the laser scan there. When I try to view it on Rviz on my remote pc the viewer is black. Not even a gird appears. However, when I type rostopic list on the remote pc I see the /scan topic and I can print it using rostopic echo /scan. Does anyone have a clue as to what's causing this issue?

I figured it out. It had something to do with the VM not using a proper emulated gpu causing hardware acceleration issues
