I have downloaded both wls_121200.jar and oepe-12.1.2.1-kepler-installer-linux-gtk.bin from the Oracle website. I have tried running both with console mode, but both fail with the same error message.

Running:
Output:

I am able to install WebLogic if I install a local X-server (Xming) and use X11 forwarding in PuTTy, but it shouldn't be necessary to setup a windowing system to install a WebLogic server on a Linux server.

Now, did I do something wrong during the installation, or did Oracle mess up by disabling console mode?

the new 12.1.2 installer hasn't a console mode.

What kind of nonsense is that? Do they really expect sysadmins to add windowing support for a server only for installing WebLogic 12.1.2.1?

Do you know if there is something similar for setting up domains?

You can use pack and unpack for it.

also WLST is another approach (using templates).
