This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I had problems the xRDP package for 10.4. I downloaded an installed the package from 10.10 and it works well. I also had problems with some of the VNC servers. I am currently running vnc4server successfully.

See my setup for Remote Desktops with VNC and RDP for more details.

I have installed vnc4server (xvnc) and I use "sesman-Xvnc" as module. I am running ubuntu 10.10 however.

Note that xrdp has to connect to a VNC server, so you have to have a vnc server installed.
