NSD1177 Getting error message: "Could not initialize class sun.awt.X11GraphicsEnvironment" on Linux or Unix


  • Nordic Edge One Time Password Server

  • Nordic Edge Automatic Account Manager


When running AAMService or OTPServer on Linux or Unix and getting the following error message:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class sun.awt.X11GraphicsEnvironment


Add the Java parameter -Djava.awt.headless=true to the script file that starts the application. 

Edit the AAMService or the OTPServer file with a texteditor, locate the following line:

   options="$jitinvoc $options"

add Djava.awt.headless=true just after the " and before the $jitinvoc. Make sure there is a space character after =true

   options="-Djava.awt.headless=true $jitinvoc $options"

Restart the service
