   It tells java not to try and contact the 'screen'. Usually this
is needed on UNIX systems that aren't running an XServer (often a
web server or the like).  If you just want to rasterize SVG documents
setting headless true is good.

   Just leave headless set to true.  If you want to interactively
view SVG documents you will need to setup X (set your DISPLAY env
var to point at an X Windows server) - how to set this up is incredibly
off topic for this forum.
