Error message -- AFNI is detached from terminal


I am getting the following message when I attempt to open AFNI through terminal on my macOS (Catalina)

"Precompiled binary macos_10.12_local: Jan 26 2020 (Version AFNI_20.0.02 ‘Galba’)

** Version check disabled: AFNI_VERSION_CHECK forbids
Thanks go to SM Laconte for great efforts

Initializing: X11Error: Can’t open display:
++ AFNI is detached from terminal."

I have been able to open AFNI without any data but haven’t been able to get it to open when I am attempting to look at my lab’s imaging…

Also, I followed the instructions for setting up AFNI but haven’t been able to install R as well – I keep being prompted to enter a password, which I can’t find. I’ve tried entering my computer password and that doesn’t work either…not sure what to do (sorry I am a total n00b)

Please let me know if you have a solution~
