Can't open window on remote screen
Hi, I'm super new to UNIX, so please don't drown me in techno-speak.
I'm accessing my university's system through a CYGWIN terminal on my laptop and got stuck trying to use a program that needs to open an additional screen. When I type the command for the program (I've seen my advisor use it on a university computer, so I'm sure I have the name right) I get the following response:
(pql:23311): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
a google search took me to another website where for a similar problem it was suggested to enter 'export DISPLAY=:0.0', but that gave me the response 'command not found' and unfortunately I couldn't understand enough of the rest of the post to continue.
Sorry this is so wordy, I guess the short question is how can i use SSH and get a window on a remote screen?
Oh, I've turned the Norton security off too.
