To run in X mode, you must have the Mathematica fonts available on your X server. To do this run the following on your desktop machine
   xset fp+ /nfs/applic/mathematica/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1 
   xset fp+ /nfs/applic/mathematica/SystemFiles/Fonts/X 
   xset fp rehash

   setenv DISPLAY xxx
Please close it down when you are not using it as it allows only 4 simultaneous users.
