You need to start the X server and to set the DISPLAY environment  
variable. You should be familiar with starting the X server given  
that you are already running xterm. The DISPLAY variable may be set  
by creating the file
   export  DISPLAY=:0.0
(you can also use .bashrc/.bash_profile but as far as I know Apple  
have simplified to .profile).
