Hello,

As you saw at the end of the traceback, libXss.so.1 is missing from your 
system.  To fix that, the administrator of your system needs to install 
the libXScrnSaver package.  On RHEL or CentOS that can be done by executing:

      sudo yum install libXScrnSaver

Not sure why it isn't already installed.
