    Hello Experts,

    We are having issues while installing Release Automation 6.5 on RHEL 7.4 which is "HeadLess" server no UI/Display . When we try to run the ./ -c we get following error message.

    Could not display the GUI. This application needs access to an X Server.


    You can also run this application in console mode without

    access to an X server by passing the argument -c



    Thank You

    Hi Sachin

    Verify the JRE installed on the server, check if multiple Java is installed on the box, try to keep current Java  PATH string and reinstall.

    Hi Experts,


    I managed to found the fix for this issue. Root cause for this issue missing the font library on the server.

    After installing the required font package issue has been resolved. Run the below command on the required servers.

    yum install dejavu-serif-fonts

      Thank You
