Run Xvfb. If X isn't already running, then run Xvfb on :0. If it is, you can
still run Xvfb on something else, e.g. :2. A sample way to run it is:

    /usr/bin/X11/Xvfb :2 -ac -screen 2 800x600x32 -fn 7x14

Note that the number after the colon and the number which is the operand of the
-screen option should be the same.
