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:

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

Can someone please help me solve this.

I agree. Here's the link:
