Fairly new to Linux, so please be kind.
I have deployed Mint 19.2 64-bit on an HCI cluster for testing and learning, the machine is virtual and running without video hardware acceleration.
I have access via console, but after trying several options to access via RDP - I am getting nowhere.
This is what I have done so far:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get xrdp
sudo apt-get xrdp xorgxrdp
sudo apt install -y freerdp-x11
echo env -u SESSION_MANAGER -u DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS xfce4-session>~/.xsession
I have also tried installing thightvncserver (sudo apt-get install tightvncserver) and rebooting. Tried session type as Xorg, X11rdp and Xvnc. The first two (Xorg and X11rdp) after login show a blue screen and after approximately five minutes display an error indicating login successful | started connecting | connection problem | giving up some problem - screenshot attached. With Xvnc the same thing happens; however, with a black screen and the same error message is displayed immediately without having the wait the odd five minutes.
displays the same login screen as with Windows RDP and results in the same as described above.
sudo tail /var/log/xrdp-sesman.log
