Detecting GPU over SSH

I would like to be able to detect a GPU on another computer over SSH. I know this question has been asked before, but I have tried everything suggested and I still can't get it to work.

What I do is: I remote in using the command "ssh -X COMPUTERNAME". Running gedit pops up a text editor window, so X forwarding is working fine. I do "sudo chmod uog+rw /ati/dev/card*" and "export COMPUTE=:0". Then, I try to run clinfo, but only the CPU is shown. However, when I do fglrxinfo, it does detect the GPU. If I run clinfo sitting at the computer, it does show the GPU. Here's what I'm using:


OS: Ubuntu 12.04 (both host and client)

GPU: ATI Firepro V9800



By the way, the end goal is to get these computers running as a cluster if anyone has info on that as well.
