Installing altera 11.1sp2 on ubuntu 14.04LTS

Hi, I have been trying to install altera 11.1sp2 for the past few hours and seem to be getting nowhere. I initially had the same problem as outlined in this thread(http://www.alteraforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=34368) I have tried both simply typing into the console with the bash ./setup as well as editing the setup file to bash instead of sh. My current problem is as follows: 

 

I enter the following into terminal 

~/11.1sp2_259_quartus_free_linux$ ./setup 

 

It outputs 

Welcome to Altera Software Installer Copyright (c) Altera Corporation 2011 Starting GUI. If nothing shows up, or you don't have an X display, run: ./setup --help for commandline usage. NOTE: All output has been redirected to /tmp/altera_setup.log.HgItAUK044 

 

Nothing shows up. So I then try  

 

./setup --help  

 

it returns
