After fresh install of Lubuntu 13.04 I did

sudo apt-get install tightvncserver
sudo apt-get install xrdp

now when I login with remote desktop client from Windows or Ubuntu, I get black and white mesh screen. I followed various help forums like http://sourceforge.net/p/xrdp/discussion/389417/thread/64949bc2, but nothing worked!

VNC server is better than that. Because sometimes compiz crashes because of xrdp –  dedunumax Sep 10 '13 at 13:40

scaryglider's guide definitely sets up remote desktop server on ur Linux box but there is a issue with nm-applet.

Could you tell how that link solved the problem? –  Braiam Sep 10 '13 at 17:37
@Braiam I think as his installer compiles the latest sources and installs the executables, I could able to view the remote desktop and hence problem solved :) –  neckTwi Sep 11 '13 at 9:24
