Found the solution as to why VNC was not showing up because in the
~/.vnc/xstartup file sh word was missing in the line exec

I will try freenx-server as well in the near future,  it is always good to
know the workaround :-) thanks Rajagopal.



# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
exec sh /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
x-terminal-emulator -geometry 1280x1024+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP
Desktop" &
x-window-manager &
