Hello!

My newly installed tightvnc server 1.2.9 is giving startup errors and 
when it finally launches the display 1, all I see when I connect from 
remote host is a gray screen with a x cursor.  I looked for the 
documentation on tightvnc/realvnc website and it said check error 
messages in ~/.vnc/display.1.log.  I see a couple of errors in there but 
dont know what that means.  Can someone help?  Here is startup error message

vikram at enigma:~$ vncserver
Couldn't start Xvnc; trying default font path.
Please set correct fontPath in the vncserver script.

New 'X' desktop is enigma:1

Starting applications specified in /home/vikram/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /home/vikram/.vnc/enigma:1.log

And here is the log:
