Are you trying to do that as root? If yes could be that root doesn't have right to start/run X applications.

Are you physically sitting at the Linux machine, or are you logged in remotely? If remotely, do you have an X/Windows server running on your desktop machine? If not, you need one. If you're not sure, then you probably don't.

DO YOU HAVE AN X/SERVER RUNNING ON YOUR DESKTOP? IF YOU DO NOT, YOU NEED ONE. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ONE, XTERM, XHOST, ECLIPSE, OR ANY OTHER PROGRAM THAT USES X WILL NOT WORK!

If your desktop machine is a Windows machine, and you have never installed an X/Window server, then you don't have one. You need to install either a commercial or freeware one, and run it. That will allow the remote machine's graphics libraries to display their windows on your machine.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
