If the display is not turned on or fitted, does it matter if there is a GUI or not?
You should be able to wire all the necessary GUI buttons to physical buttons if you load halui.

You might find that if you delete the line in the INI file that refers to AXIS that no GUI is loaded, I am not entirely sure.
