This is after a fresh install of 19.3 x64 cinnamon- the only thing I did was install the various servers/clients listed above - using those available in the default repositories (and backed out each when they didn't work). I followed many different tutorials and walkthroughs posted here and ubuntu forums (albeit none for 19.x as I've found nothing other than posts recommending things like Teamviewer or other solutions that require a proprietary intermediary which I won't use)
I finally got x11rdp to work. Connection worked from all clients I tested from 3 machines and all is well - works when tested locally and remotely. I used:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update sudo apt install xrdp xorgxrdp sudo apt install -y freerdp-x11 echo env -u SESSION_MANAGER -u DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS cinnamon-session>~/.xsession sudo reboot
I am greeted with an Authentication request for org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.network-control Authenticating changes nothing. I get a warning that hardware graphics acceleration is disabled and the system my appear slow.
I tried backing out the .session changes and restarting... no joy. Uninstalled xrdp, xorgxrdp and freedp-x11 (again, all available from default repositories). Same thing happens. I can't login. I ran timeshift from livecd and restored from before I started editing and I can log in again and the settings I changed are verified reverted
Any ideas? I'd really like to use a remote desktop and since it appears I had all the remote functionality working it must be possible.
