Maybe you just forgot to write, but just in case, I will mention it!
Setenv must be used to set a variable! Here, you didn't type the variable you want to set. So you must do
"setenv DISPLAY <yourIP>:0.0"
As a test, type
when you are logged to this machine and you will see to which hostname
the display is set. If the output corresponds to your IP, well it should work! If not, then set it using setenv (see above).
Otherwise, I don't know why it doesn't work! I am still a newbie also!
