Bit of ubuntu noob but I'm trying to run a code off github on a server remotely using SSH, and the code stops at this Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

How to solve this error? I don't think I can use VNC server as I don't have root permissions. Any other way to access/enable GUI interface of server running Ubuntu?



You should enable X11Forwarding in /etc/ssh/sshd_config and then see what happens.

Excerpt from a config file:

 X11Forwarding yes
 X11DisplayOffset 10
 PrintMotd no
 PrintLastLog yes
 TCPKeepAlive yes

Hope this helps.
