xfce via vnc question

I'm trying to access a remote (headless) server via vncviewer. 
vncviewer connects fine but the screen is blank with no xfce panel or 

I've installed xfce and dependencies on the server and run the xfce 
install script as instructed. The .xinitrc file looks fine, as does 
the .xfce directory. I added an xterm& line to .xinitrc, but that 
didn't change things a bit.

I suspect the problem is that I don't understand the X startup 
process well enough and the xinit process isn't happening. Can 
someone please advise? Thanks!
