Have you set your DISPLAY variable ?

Just type
Quote:

EXPORT DISPLAY=<your-PC's-IP-Address>:0.0

in your command prompt.

Then re-run the Installer.

It might work, It might not.

@DreamzZ
What are you talking about ?
Why would you want to change user.....

@ramzi_j_h
If it's still not working for you. Then you probably need to be running an X-Windows on your PC
