What does setting the platform to "minimal" actually do there? Would not adding "-screen 0 640x480x24" to the xvfb-run args list, be a better fix?

Or if we should use "minimal" for platform, should we not do this in the build system rather than debian/rules, and remove the use of xvfb-run?

Changes like this, we should do always or never; not only in debian/rules.

The minimal plugin avoids using X while still allowing QML tests to be run and doing the rendering, just not the final stage of outputting to X. Some tests may be hard to run without accelerated OpenGL since QML2 requires OpenGL 2.0 / shaders etc. But a PPA test shows that your suggested method also works, and it might be better since there's a X virtual framebuffer in the picture. Changing the proposal to that.

Use xvfb -screen 0 640x480x24 instead of minimal platform plugin
