RStudio Server with X11

I have a CentOS 7 machine with the RStudio Server installed. There are R packages which require X11 to be available.

I can run R from terminal with X11 enabled. I can run RStudio Desktop from the Gnome GUI with X11 enabled. However, when I run RStudio Server from the web GUI X11 is not available.

Is there any way how to make X11 available when running R from the RStudio Server web GUI?

Related but there is not an answer to my question:

which specific packages are you referring to that require X11 to be available?
