    18.04.2 seems to have broken xrdp

    I have observed the following on two different computers:

    On Ubuntu 18.04, I am able to install xrdp and log in remotely via Reminna or Windows RDP client without any problems.

    If I do a fresh install of 18.04.2 and install xrdp or if I update my working 18.04 installation by running

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-18.04 xserver-xorg-hwe-18.04
    xrdp stops working. That is, when I login using an RDP client, I am presented with the xrdp login screen, but when I select xorg and try to login with my username and password, I see a blue screen for about a minute and then

    Code:
    connecting to sesman ip 127.0.0.1
    sesman connect ok
    sending login info to session manager, please wait...
    login successful for display 10
    started connecting
    connection problem, giving up
    some problem
    The only difference between the working configuration and the broken one is Ubuntu 18.04 vs 18.04.2 (OR HWE installed using the above command).

    Any ideas?

    These steps works in 18.04 LTS

    Install xfce4 first
    Code:
    sudo apt install xrdp
    echo xfce4-session>~/.xsession
    sudo vi/etc/xrdp/startwm.sh
    Add startxfce4 to the end
    However, it does not work on 18.04.2 LTS. Since xrdp is a must for me, I ended up reinstall 18.04.2 with 18.04.

    So xrdp 100% does not work on 18.04.2. Please fix the issue.

    I had the problem with the latest version of 18.04 (I presume it is 18.04.2 since it's fully updated). What I found as a solution/workaround is to change the last lines in /etc/xrdp/startwm.sh as follows:

    Code:
    # test -x /etc/X11/Xsession && exec /etc/X11/Xsession
    # exec /bin/sh /etc/X11/Xsession
    
    startxfce4
    
    exit(0)
    And it works.

    Thiago Martins' solution works if you do not want to continue using gnome.


    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...25/comments/25

    So, there is a need to rebuild xrdp against HWE 18.04.Maybe Ubuntu should provide a new binary package, let's say "xrdp-hwe-18.04"
    For now, I've recompiled the same xrdp from Ubuntu 18.04, on Ubuntu 18.04.2 and uploaded to my "XRP PPA", here:
    https://launchpad.net/~martinx/+arch...xrdp-hwe-18.04
    To enjoy xrdp on Ubuntu 18.04 with HWE, just do:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:martinx/xrdp-hwe-18.04
    sudo apt install xrdp xorgxrdp

    For all desperate souls out there:

    sudo apt install xserver-xorg-core
    sudo apt install xorgxrdp

    Tested both on Kubuntu and Ubuntu 18.04.2

    FYI, on the next day (after reboot) I was unable to use Keybord and Mouse after Login screen on ubuntu 18.04 (gnome). apt purge the xorgxrdp from CLI tty solve the issue...

    Considering all the horrid bugs in Windows RDP, you really, really should consider changing to SSH. Windows 10 now has SSH support built in.
