Like the title says im getting this error when trying to connect with tightvnc viewer from windows 7 to ubuntu server which has installed xubuntu-desktop(with sudo aptitude install xubuntu-desktop) and lxde(with sudo aptitude install lxde).

So i start tightvnc viewer i connect to the server with ip:1,after that i use my password that ive set on the tighvncserver and after that it opens a window of tightvncviewer with this error and the option to logout, any clue?

Ive installed xubuntu-desktop first because when i install lxde directly lxdm-binary is taking my cpu to 100%.

Also im able to connect with open ssh from ubuntu or with putty from windows through ssh conection but not with remote desktop.
