I might be mistaken, but "No protocol specified" is an error frequently
returned by an X server [*] when a connection to the display can be
established, but the client fails to authenticate and is denied access.

If my diagnosis is true, the error message indicates a setup problem on
the machine running R CMD check, not a package problem. At the
very least, this error message does not seem to appear anywhere in the R
source code.

Best regards,
