Remote desktop

Post by pfp » Sat Jan 12, 2019 8:28 pm

Good evening:
Have xrdp loaded on Linux Mint 19.1
Attempt to access from Windows and remote desktop
Linux unit answers; accepts user name and password
But then just hangs and does not load desktop or icons etc
Eventually times out
Any and all suggestions/recommendations appreciated
Thank you,

A number of people here generally recommend Teamviewer for remote access. (Myself included.) You can get the others to work, but Teamviewer seems to be the least trouble. I see on the forums people mention using remmina, so that's another you might try. I use xtightvnc to access my Raspberry Pi remotely. Lots of possibilities, but hopefully somebody will be able to help you get xrdp working.
