*If* the issue has to do with one user trying to display the message on a
desktop owned by another user, that might not be easy. :-)

Since the crontab entry I posted earlier works for me, I would concentrate
on trying to determine why exactly yours is failing.  Which user owns the
desktop and which user's crontab is used to run the command?  The latter
should receive an email from cron when something goes wrong.
