I followed this guide i found " ... -tigervnc/ ", i went until the step 'setup'. After i typed vncserver it proposed a password, i said no to view only, and then this was the output i got:

shinigami@Debian-PC:~$ vncserver

Starting applications specified in /etc/X11/Xvnc-session has failed.
Maybe try something simple first, e.g.,
tigervncserver -xstartup /usr/bin/xterm

At this point i should be able to use VNC but with this output something is clearly wrong, but im unable to understand what or how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated.

With thanks and regards,
