Alright, fixed, thanks guys!

Try installing xterm and see if that one opens. You can also try reinstalling you current terminal as well.

The OS is Ubuntu 18.04 x64 and I have xfce4 as the Desktop environment

Heya,

It would be nice if you could tell us a bit more about the OS you are using and if you installed a Desktop environment(like Gnome) before attempting a VNC connection.
