Tried installing XD2 and it won't go. Here's what I get:

brooks@84:~> xhost +localhost
localhost being added to access control list
brooks@84:~> su
84:/home/brooks # wget -q -O - |sh
==> Autodetecting system type...
==> Checking $DISPLAY and X permissions...

The Ximian Desktop Installer is a graphical application, and
either you have no DISPLAY variable set or the root user does not
have permission to access your X server. Run 'xhost +localhost'
before becoming root, and make sure that the DISPLAY variable is
set correctly before running the go-ximian script.

Cleaning up temporary files... done.

As you can see, I get this message AFTER I run the 'xhost +localhost' command
that it suggests. I have no idea how to check whether I have a DISPLAY
variable set.

Any ideas?
