Have you set 'DISPLAY=0:0' in your .profile|.bashrc?

> xterm terminal:
> $ fontforge
> bash: fontforge: command not found

There's a problem with the $PATH variable of xterm. I had something like 
this a while ago IIRC. I set i via my .MacOSX/environment.plist but i 
must confess that i don't have the right syntax at hand.
'man defaults' should gibe you a clue.

I hope that helps even if it's not much :-)
