    I assume, you ran the command "apt-get install kde"?

    In your home directory, there should be .vnc directory. In that directory, you'll find xstartup file. Remove everything from that file and add "startkde" (without the quotes) to the file. Save the file and you know what to do after that. But you may want to back up that file before changing anything in it.

    If Olegl's suggestion doesn't work try this:

    cd .vnc
    sudo nano xstartup

    Replace the contents with the below:

    #!/bin/sh

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

    [ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
    [ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
    xsetroot -solid grey
    vncconfig -iconic &
    xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
    startkde &
    ctrl-x, to save and quit.

    Restart vncserver:

    sudo vnc4server (vncserver) restart
