Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I use 'Remote Desktop Connection' in Windows 7 to connect to my Ubuntu 12.10 machine with xRdp installed, I can login, but the only thing I get after logging in is an empty desktop.

I found that many people could fix this by creating a .xsession -file in their home-directory, with following command: gnome-session --session=ubuntu-2d

I tried it, but it doesn't work.

When I try that command from the terminal, it gives the following: A messagebox:

 Could not acquire name on session bus

A WARNING in the terminal:

 Failed to acquire org.gnome.SessionManager

Any help greatly appreciated!
