Configuring Linux/Unix installations to display the Gantt chart properly

If you are installing the Project Reporter server on Linux or another Unix platform, you may experience problems with the display of the Gantt chart in reports generated by Project Reporter. If the Gantt bar images fail to appear correctly, the following procedure will correct the problem.

In order to enable the generation of images for the Gantt chart display on Unix platforms, you must configure the Java runtime options for your server to set the java.awt.headless property to true. For Apache Tomcat 4.1 on Linux, you can do this by adding the following line to the /etc/tomcat4/tomcat4.conf file:

JAVA_OPTS="-Djava.awt.headers=true"

You should restart the server after changing this setting.

If you are using another web server, consult its documentation for information on how to configure runtime parameters for the Java virtual machine.
