VNC server on Fedora 19 - LXDE - get empty desktop with small Grey panel

Fedora 19, with LXDE installed tigerVNC server (most packages) with yum I opened the firewall I set up vncserver password, tried few sessions (:1, :2 ,etc) Sessions establishes but I get an empty desktop/screen with a grey panel in a corner, that lists 3 check boxes . [v] Accept clipboard from viewers [v] Send clipboard to viewers [v] Send primary selection to viewers

I saw this similar issue on older Linuxs, with other distributions, but can't find something that works for me. No error in the logs except something related to Xkeyboard:

*the XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:

Internal error: Could not resolve keysym XF86AudioMicMute Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server*

I tried different other xstarts, such as startlxde &, lxterminal, /usr/bin/lxsession -s LXDE, etc

I've got no idea how to troubleshoot. I can't find any tip for anything to install or correct scripts I would rather not have to install Gnome (slow machine + remote)
