Problem launching VIPM on openSUSE 15.1

I have installed openSUSE 15.1 on my laptop and on a VM.  In both cases, I am unable to launch VIPM.  When I try, an error message comes up:  Unable to open x display.


I have confirmed this behavior with both the Wayland and Xorg x servers (echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE).


I have been successful in using VIPM with CentOS.  However, I would prefer to use openSUSE if possible.  If anyone has any suggestions, I would be open to trying them.  Please keep in mind that I am new to Linux, so please be patient with me.  Also, whatever I need to do to transition over to Linux for development will be better than what I am enduring using Windows.


Thank you!
