    How do I get the standard desktop with VNC

    When I log in to my Ubuntu-server over VNC I get an empty desktop with an open X-terminal. I would, however, like to see the the same desktop as I get with a local login with all the features it offers.
    How do I accomplish this?
    My Ubuntu 11.04 server is running Xtightvnc.
    Thankful for any tip.

    Solved:
    xstartup:
    #!/bin/sh
    unset SESSION_MANAGER
    exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
    [ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
    [ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources


    chmod 777 xstartup

    start with
    ~# vncserver -geometry 1920x1080
