What could be wrong here? Could you please suggest me.

    given that there is no Studio installer script (there is one for RapidMiner Server, though), you are talking about the regular script to start the GUI of RapidMiner Studio.

    The error indicates that your X Server is not running. You need that to be able to use the GUI of Studio.
