xrdp not working on 20.04 LTS

Post by philby »

I am trying to upgrade my C2 to Ubuntu Mate 20.04 LTS from 18.04 LTS.

The upgrade process closes xrdp and after that I can no longer access the device from Windows Remote Desktop.

I have tried a clean install of 20.04 but cannot get the xrdp server on the C2 to allow remote access from my laptop.

Please can someone tell me if I am missing something obvious on the upgraded device which prevents Remote Desktop from working.

I want to try and run the C2 as a headless media server. If there is an alternative to xrdp, I would appreciate any advice.

Philip

I'd recommend x11vnc. You can try the command in the systemd service referenced here: https://github.com/mad-ady/ansible-odro ... 11vnc.yaml

Thanks mad_ady.
I installed x11vnc and selecting the vnc-any session on Remote Desktop, everything is now working fine.
