Vivado - ERROR: [Common 17-258] Couldn't open 'libX11.so.6': 'libX11.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory'

Description

I am using a Linux machine without X11 and trying to run Vivado in batch mode:
vivado -mode batch -source my_proj.tcl
When Vivado is launched I receive the following error:
 

ERROR: [Common 17-258] Couldn't open 'libX11.so.6': 'libX11.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory'

Solution

If X11 cannot be added, use the following solution to work around this problem.
 
Open /vivado/Vivado/2014.x/lib/scripts/rdi/features/base/base.tcl and comment out the following line:

rdi::x11_workaround

Rerun the script and it should work.
