    Red face No program menu when connecting with xrdp

    I installed xrdp to connect to my Ubuntu machine from my Windows 7 machine. Logging in is easy, but no menus appear. Open windows display fine, but there is no way to launch a program, etc. Here's a screenshot of what I'm seeing:



    Anybody know why this is happening?

    what happenes when you right click the desktop ?or alt+f2 ?
    Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority

    It doesn't work in ubuntu 12.10, ubuntu-2d is deprecated, you can use:

    "gnome-session --session=gnome-fallback" in ~/.xsession


    echo "gnome-session --session=gnome-fallback" > ~/.xsession
