Alex, xvfb http://www.xfree86.org/4.0.1/Xvfb.1.html works for our headless node R graphics and possibly other packages. I seem to remember writing a wiki entry but a search didn't find it...
I see someone on the dev list found the toolfactory code which does a lot of sensible things automatically to create a pretty useful html index for a folder full of pdfs/pngs/xls/....

We generate pdfs or you could generate a mixed datatype html file linking to seperate documents/images (like the fastQC tool). If you get the export to png working on a headless server without desktop/gui..please let me know. In our hands it only works on full desktop linux environments somehow. Alex

There are existing tools which produce a PDF file as a Galaxy output, shown as its own 'green box' in the history. This works quite nicely if the browser shows the PDF in-line, but one one of my machines (not sure which browser off hand) it insists on downloading the PDF and opening it instead - which isn't quite as smooth an interface.
Thanks for the info!
Seems like that could be one way of doing it. I would probably output png rather than pdf, and that might work better.
