Can I install X applications on Ubuntu Server to run on a remote display?

Yes, it should be possible to install any X application without
triggering the installation of X.org itself, which you don't need if you
don't plan on running an X server on your remote server.
Just try running
> apt-get install XYZ
to install whatever it is you want, and if you don't like the look of
the dependencies that tries to drag in, just decline the installation
and post them here.
