Most likely you do not have a window manager configured in your
~/vnc/xstartup file.  Mine, for example, looks like this:


[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
startxfce4 &

The last line starts up my window manager and desktop.
