XSCT 2016 - Error: Xvfb is only supported on Linux

Description

When I launch XSCT on my RHEL machine, I receive the following error:

Error: Xvfb is only supported on Linux
Could not start Dummy XServer, please make sure Xvfb is available on the system


Solution

This error occurs if the DISPLAY environment variable is not set.

Before launching XSCT, use the setenv command to set the DISPLAY environment variable.

For example:

setenv DISPLAY dummy

Now, launch XSCT. 

This error should not occur.
