Error while installing Oracle 12c database on Ubuntu 16.04

I followed this tutorial to install Oracle database 12c in Ubuntu 16.04

However I am getting the following error on executing the command

/tmp/database/runInstaller  Checking monitor: must be configured to display at least 256 colors >>> Could not execute auto check for display colors using command /usr/bin/xdpyinfo. Check if the DISPLAY variable is set.     Failed <<<<  Some requirement checks failed. You must fulfill these requirements before continuing with the installation, 

What to do now?


I did:

DISPLAY=hostname:0.0 export DISPLAY xclock 


Now I get the following error:

Error: Can't open display: [myhostname]:0.0 


My error is probably because X server is most likely not listening on a TCP socket.
