Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:


Getting this when trying to run ./mozilla-installer. Is this a permissions issue, or a dependency issue?

Thanks!

What that usually means is either a) you don't have an x-server running or b) you are running the installer as a different user then the server is running as.
