[PLUG] Installing VNC server on Xubuntu

Hi all,

I have been trying to install any VNC server on Xubuntu, so far without
success. Both tightvncserver and vnc4server install and seem to startup
without error, but any time I try to connect a client I get "connection

SSH is working fine, and I can start the VNC server over the SSH connection,
but get the same error when trying to connect a VNC client. 

I have found several tutorials on-line but none seem to match my system as
far as file names, scripts and file locations.

I have also checked the configurations on my Myth boxes which have VNC
server enabled and working, but the location and contents of VNC related
configuration and resource files is completely different.

Anyone know of a tutorial / walk through that works for xubuntu 10.04.
