    Remote session works over xrdp except text not visible in terminal emulator

    Folks,

    I have installed a minimal version of Ubuntu server 12.10 + openbox. I also installed xrdp.

    I am able to create a new remote desktop session from a Windows machine. The browser and other apps seem to work. My only problem is with the terminal emulator. Althouth the emulator window gets created, the prompt is not visible. If I type in, for example, ls, in the window, I now see a list of files. However, what I typed itself is not visible.

    Essentially, I don't see the prompt and anything that I type in the emulator window.

    I am wondering if anyone can tell me what could be the problem here. This is a fresh install with no additional software except xrdp and firefox.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Regards,
    Peter

    I found the problem. It appears the text is written in black. If I create a new xterm as "xterm -bg white," I can see my text.

    To fix it, I modified ~./Xresources and changed XTerm*background: white. However, it didn't make any difference even after the reboot.

    Does anyone know how to fix the background for xterm?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Regards,
    Peter
