Hello,

I am tying to create a site that at one point automatically opens the browsers printing dialog box with a streamed PDF.
It currently works on my machine but when we deploy to the test server i get the error:

java.awt.HeadlessException:
No X11 DISPLAY variable was set, but this program performed an operation which requires it. at sun.print.PSPrinterJob.printDialog(PSPrinterJob.java:401)
     at org.pdfbox.pdmodel.PDDocument.print(PDDocument.java:......

Can someone please help me solve this.

Thanks.
