I am using Xubuntu 13.10 and want to remotely access this machine. Everything works fine except that the mouse courser position doesn't change on the remote system if I move it on the server machine (Xubuntu 13.10). Its shape is updating if I accidentally hover the mouse pointer over a textfield or anything else but the position is fixed. I have tested Teamviewer (yes I've checked "show remote cursor" on the client) and x11vnc (tested various cursor options). Both behave similar: The cursor shape updates but the position is fixed. I have tested XFCE, LXDE with Openbox and KDE. Its the same on all desktops environments

I am using xrdp directly connecting using windows remote desktop

yum install xrdp -y

chkconfig --levels 35 xrdp on

service xrdp start

Once installed on destination, connect with remote desktop using

Module: sesman-Xvnc username: your username (not the name of your account shown on login desktop, use your UserName) password: your password

How do I tell xrdp to take the current xsession I am using on the host? –  user1325516 Feb 13 at 16:06
    
OK, I used this but still no remote cursor –  user1325516 Feb 13 at 16:25
    
Vino had problems with the screen resolution (it was 1366x768, which is not a multiple of 4). After changing it to 1360x768 the cursor is shown! –  user1325516 Feb 13 at 16:53
