Replace your ~/.vnc/xstartup file with the following content:

#!/bin/sh
unset SESSION_MANAGER
exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
startxfce4

  1. I tried this but it didn’t work?

    I installed ‘xubuntu-desktop’ and ‘vnc4server’. I got a blank grey screen. Then I made the following modification.

    #!/bin/sh

    # Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
    unset SESSION_MANAGER
    exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

    [ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
    [ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
    # xsetroot -solid grey
    vncconfig -iconic &
    x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80×24+10+10 -ls -title “$VNCDESKTOP Desktop” &
    x-window-manager &
    startxfce4
