[las_users] Setting up the FERRET display environment

Hi Everyone,

My installation of FERRET stopped working when I tweaked the display environment based on the documentation. I used 'export=' instead of 'setenv' since I am running a bash shell script. 
root@MONSTER:~/ferret# export DISPLAY=MONSTER:0.0
root@MONSTER:~/ferret# printenv DISPLAY
root@MONSTER:~/ferret# ferret
Application initialization failed: couldn't connect to display "MONSTER:0.0"
Loading external megawidget libraries:

     BWidget 1.6
Error in startup script: couldn't connect to display "MONSTER:0.0"
    while executing
"load /usr/lib/libtk8.5.so.0 Tk"
    ("package ifneeded Tk 8.5.11" script)
    invoked from within
"package require Tk 8.1.1"
    ("package ifneeded BWidget 1.9.5" script)
    invoked from within
"package require BWidget 1.6"
    (file "/usr/share/ferret/ferret.tcl" line 886)
    invoked from within
"source /usr/share/ferret/ferret.tcl"
    (file "/usr/bin/ferret" line 2)

Can anyone tell me how I can get the graphical output to show on my workstation please?
