xhost: unable to open display is the common error we see while trying to install softwares in GUI mode. 

To over come this error download xhost linux file from the following link: 

Extract the archive file. 

Open Terminal and Go to : usr --> X11R7 --> bin 

Use following commands and add required ipaddress and runInstaller(below user name is oracle) : 

$ xhost + ipaddress

$ xhost + SI:localuser:oracle

$ su oracle


if you want to remove ipaddress: 

xhost - ipaddress
