ImageMagick `display` problem

I am bringing up 2 brand spanking new desktops PCs with Ubuntu 14.04.2
and TDE 14.0.0 -- using the live CD from the Trinity web site.

jonesy@nix6: $ display /opt/trinity/share/apps/amarok/images/amarok_rocks.jpg
display.im6: color is not known to server `FOREGROUND': No such file or
   directory @ error/xwindow.c/XGetPixelPacket/3064.
jonesy@nix6: $

A web search on "display.im6: color is not known to server" pulls
up _only_ two references to the error message, and one of them
is :

	Subject:   Imagemagick error  (!!!) which
describes _my_ problem exactly.  That was 1 1/2 years ago.

Only I do not see that he ever got a reply, nor do I see any fix or
work-around for the problem.

If I shorten up the search for just "color is not known to server", I
see a lot more hits for what seems to be the same problem.  But, still,
I see no fixes or work-arounds (yet).

I use `display` A LOT in desktop objects and I really need this fixed or

I can't believe I'm the only one in the Trinity group to have this

Thank you,
