You have to enable X11Forwarding in the remote ssh server through
putting following line

X11Forwarding yes

into /etc/ssh/sshd_config (search X11Forwarding, its turned off per
default in debian). Then restart your remote server through

# /etc/init.d/ssh restart

Log in again and it should work now. DISPLAY should be set to

So long
