I downloaded Ubuntu precise with Complete Linux Installer which uses VNC by default. Then I found a native X server on Google Play and I'd like to try it. I read somewhere I must export display, but I don't know how to.

export DISPLAY=:0

when you type "xterm" a terminal should appear inside X

But doesn't work very well, because some x11-Features are not implemented in this Android-Xserver.
