Can't Install Tuxedo 12.1.3 On Linux In Console Mode (Doc ID 2267828.1)

Last updated on MAY 13, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Tuxedo - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Trying to install Tuxedo 12.1.3 on Redhat Linux 6.7 in console mode, and apparently that option has been removed. Linux servers do not have GUIs installed.

Tried to create a response file, for silent installation, by executing "./runInstaller -record -destinationFile /psoft/tmp/tuxfile.rsp" and these errors occurred:

DISPLAY not set. Please set the DISPLAY and try again.
Depending on the Unix Shell, you can use one of the following commands as examples to set the DISPLAY environment variable:
- For csh:                      % setenv DISPLAY IP:0.0
- For sh, ksh and bash:         $ DISPLAY=IP:0.0; export DISPLAY
Use the following command to see what shell is being used:
       echo $SHELL
Use the following command to view the current DISPLAY environment variable setting:
       echo $DISPLAY
- Make sure that client users are authorized to connect to the X Server.

To test that the DISPLAY environment variable is set correctly, run a X11 based program that comes with the native operating system such as 'xclock':
       % <full path to xclock.. see below>
If you are not able to run xclock successfully, please refer to your PC-X Server or OS vendor for further assistance.
Typical path for xclock: /usr/X11R6/bin/xclock
