I think that Guerilla needs a display (it is, after all, a rendering engine), so the lack of display causes a code crash.

When I get this sort of problem, the first thing I do is try to run "xclock".  It's a quick and simple program to run, and it clearly reports simple config errors.  If xclock works, then there is something specifically wrong with the progam I was originally trying to run.

Is your display actually on :0?  If you are running multiple screens, or through a remote viewer, DISPLAY can have other values (e.g. :0.1, :1.0, or hostname_running_display:0).

Use this :

export DISPLAY=0.0

and then try again to run it.
