I assume you mean you want to see the desktop (gnome or kde)?

Edit your $HOME/.vnc/xstartup file to look like this and restart


# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
# 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" &
# twm &
/usr/bin/gnome-session &   
/usr/bin/gnome-terminal &

(For kde, replace the last 2 lines with):

/usr/bin/startkde &
/usr/bin/console &
