You need to install some xorg stuff. Not sure wether you need
xserver-xorg. I doubt it.

You don't need vncviewer! Why do you not just login into your domU and
start kicker (the KDE panel)
ssh -n -X kicker &
You may also start gdmflexiserver which gives you a root window in
normal window.

This assumes that you want to connect from a X11 system or have at least
a local X11 server installed (on the system where you want to see the
window, not your domU).

It is also possible to redirect all graphical stuff to a
separate virtual console.
X -query
or something similar should work (but it is not encrypted).
