    What do you get from root if you enter
    echo $DISPLAY
    my guess is it might end with another number e.g. 1.0 instead of 0.0

    xhost +
    export DISPLAY=I.P.ADDRESS:0.0(I.P.ADDRESS of your local machine from where you are getting connected)
    xhost +

    this is if you are using xmanager
