Hey Hamish, sorry for the delay

g.gui works correctly, and also X0 is there
actually I could export the jpeg as I wanted

so... the error causes no problem but it's there
maybe will fix it installing the next version or updates

yes, its GRASS 6.4.3 and i have the repositories of ubuntugis enabled
thanks for the tips!!! :)
