Almost Done!  FastX Setup

Optional (In Case You Dislike FastX) - X11 Forwarding

To run programs with GUIs written according to the X display protocol, like gedit or Eclipse, you need an X server.

Start by downloading the program XQuartz here.

Once the install wizard finishes, log out of your personal computer and log back in to finish the installation process.

From now on, instead of using Terminal to ssh, open XQuartz. (Note: Depending on your version of Mac OS, you might see the program referred to as X11).
