That your X server isn't listening to TCP.  Which is normal in this
century.  That's why we have DISPLAY=:0 instead of DISPLAY=localhost:0.

(Or, your X server isn't running at all.  But since you seemed to expect
to see something, I'm guessing that you actually do have X running, so
my first answer is probably what you want.)
