Help installing VNCSERVER using KDE

I’ve been trying to install the VNCSERVER without any success getting it work. Copied the install procedures from the Blue Ocean web site.

Startup login works but all I can get is a somewhat checkered screen and nothing else. Below is a copy of my Xstartup file located in the .vnc directory under my home directory.

Any help resolving this issue will be appreciated. Thanks

#!/bin/bash
#xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
start kde &

Maybe instead use startkde on line #3?
