Re: $DISPLAY variable empty after SSHing
X11 forwarding has to be enabled on the server. If it's not, then any
request by the client to forward X connections (due to -X or -Y
options or ForwardX11 in ~/.ssh/config or /etc/ssh_config or wherever)
will be ignored.
Check the sshd_config on the final host (the "work computer").
