I am currently working with a Raspberry Pi Model B running Raspbian. I have to display a web page on a screen using the uzbl-browser but this error is occurring:

gtk-launch uzbl-browser
** (gtk-launch:26369): WARNING **: Could not open X display
Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused

(gtk-launch:26369): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :1

    You should answer your own question or if it is unlikely to help others (a typo or misconnection) delete your question. – Steve Robillard Feb 21 '17 at 22:38

The problem is I didn't install matchbox for the window manager and I had also not installed lightdm.

After that I set the display variable to export DISPLAY=:0 and it is now working.
