Please try to setup environment variable DISPLAY on your remote machine.


setenv DISPLAY localhostIPAddress:20.0

or bash
export DISPLAY=localhostIPAddress:20.0

where localhostIPAddress is your IP address of your current working
machine (local machine)

Usually, I just use localhostIPAddress:0.0, you can ask your group
member to get information, which *.x you should use.

Hope this helps.
