I installed ubuntu 10.10 Server and install xubuntu-desktop use tasksel.

and I want to connect my ubuntu 10.10 Sever by VNC Server (RealVNC 4.6.0 x64)

but when I connect my desktop, it connect xfce4 session not a xubuntu-session..

What can I run xubuntu-session on my vnc connect?

please tell me xubuntu-session start command like "gnome-session" for gnome or xfdesktop/startxfce4 for xfce4...

The main difference between Ubuntu and Xubuntu is that Xubuntu uses XFCE as its default GUI instead of GNOME. So, in Ubuntu you start gnome-session. In Xubuntu you start xfce4-session. xubuntu-desktop is a meta package which installs XFCE and GTK applications and themes chosen for that flavour of *buntu. Your "problem" is not a mistake, it's by design.
