Terminal not working with xrdp

Postby wewa00 on Wed Dec 25, 2013 2:27 pm

Merry Christmas everybody,

I want use xrdp and XFCE to remote control a Linux Mint 16 PC. I can already log in to the system remotely and work with the most applications. I only noticed, that I cant type anything into the terminal (so it is useless).

Whats the problem here, can you help me?

Best regards

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I don't want to offend, but why are you using a GUI to attempt to open a CLI? Or is it that you want to have them both open at the same time? Otherwise, simply SSH in to the remote computer.

Hy, I'd like to have them both open at the same time. It worked with every system I've used now (Ubuntu, Raspbian). Therefore I don't know why it should not work with Mint...

In order to report a bug, you first must specify which GUI terminal emulator you have tried that did not work. With Mint 16 Xfce, you have the xfce4-terminal and x-terminal available installed by default, not to mention at least half a dozen different terminal emulators which are not native to Xfce4 which can be installed and work fine under Xfce.

I am inferring that you are running Linux Mint 16 Xfce with all updates from your OP, correct me if I am wrong.

Alternative methods to get to the CLI include the Ctrl-Alt-F4, etc., function key combinations, selecting from the menu, and running xterm or xfce4-terminal from the dialogue box after pressing the key combination Alt-F2. Have you tried all of them to see if some work and some don't?

Thank you for your answer. It helped me to solve my problem.

I use Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon. I had problems running Cinnamon over xrdp. Therefore I installed xfce, to use it while connected over xrdp. But I didn't install a xfce terminal. Now I installed the xfce4-terminal and this terminal works with xfce.

I also experience difficulties with authorization over xrdp, but I open a new thread for that.

Best regards
