How I can get Finnish keyboard layout to work with XRDP?

As root:

cd /etc/xrdp
cp km-041d.ini km-040b.ini

This copies Swedish keyboard layout to Finnish keyboard layout.

Now run in your actual X session (not xrdp):

setxkbmap -layout fi

Then connect to this machine via Windows RDP client and Finnish keyboard layout works.

I couldn't use that setxkbmap command even after copying the file, but restarting xrdp did the trick. – 3ventic May 28 '15 at 8:31
