Probably that wasn’t the right thing to do. The server did start and the viewer did connect. Only the display manager was something no same person would possibly want to use. (Couldn’t even find the exit button.) It certainly wasn’t KDE and KDE I would like to have.
This is how it works for RealVNC. I’m by no means saying that this is how it has to work, but I could not find any information on what I should do. Please tell me and I’m happy to try.
Perhaps it wasn’t tightvnc which I started. Don’t think it was realvnc either, as it clearly didn’t read realvnc’s config file.

Have you used tightvnc viewer or tightvnc server ?
You may need “tightvnc viewer” to start.

I am trying to start a vnc server using tightvnc, but failed. If anyone has any knowledge on how to do this then please let me know.

I would check what you have in you .vnc directory in the xstartup file.
I use Fedora, and generally use the xfce for the connection, and it requires
some modifications to the xstartup file.
Found one that talked about suse and kde.
#xrdb $HOME/.Xresources #I have no .Xresources file
xsetroot -solid grey
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
