The most annoying part while using xrdp (with Ubuntu) is the fact that you have to install an alternate desktop environment.

updating ubuntu 8 04 to 8 1-54

To edit the file, issue the following command If this is your first connection, leave the default value in the port field (i.e.

-1), you will be then connecting through xrdp to your ubuntu machine using a specified port that can be seen on the login process dialog box. Using only the ubuntu xrdp package, we have been able to install and configure a remote access solution.

Basically, you will be notified that a new version is available and you will be asked if you want to upgrade to the latest version.

At that point the system can display whatever resolution the graphics card supports via the VESA BIOS extensions.

To configure this, from the terminal console, you will issue the following command At this stage, you should have a basic xrdp working solution.
