When I was trying to use Puppeteer in my Ubuntu VPS, It gave some stranger error mentioning some dependencies are missing.
But I’m sure that I have installed the Puppeteer globally.
If you also facing the same error, you can install the dependencies by following the steps below.
Update the apt-get repository
sudo apt-get update
Then run the below command to install the dependencies
Install the dependencies
sudo apt-get install -y libgtk2.0-0 libgtk-3-0 libnotify-dev libgconf-2-4 libnss3 libxss1 libasound2 libxtst6 xauth xvfb libgbm-dev
Once installed you’re ready to go.
If you still facing issues, Feel free to comment below.

You saved my day! I just needed to add ‘–no-sandbox’ argument on launch after installing the dependencies.
Glad it helps. Thanks
