At first glance, the problem looks to be a missing or incorrect class being referenced in Confluence; specifically, the prime suspect is the fop jar in the /confluence/WEB-INF/lib directory.

Cause

The issue stems from the missing AWT LibrayAlthough the error message asked to check that Headless mode is enabled, this is actually already enabled by default in the*setenv.sh of standalone Confluence distributions. The conclusion here is that the problem is called by the missing X11 libraries.

A missing resources for the JDK, specifically libXp.so.6 from the deprecated X11 rpm.

Resolution

Download and install the deprecated X11 libraries for your linux distribution. The problem is described further in Confluence UNIX and X11 Dependencies.
