I am following a video on xRDP from windows RDP and I needed to install xorgxrdp. When I try that I am told there are some dependency issues such as below:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 xorgxrdp : Depends: xorg-video-abi-23
            Depends: xserver-xorg-core (>= 2:
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

How can I fix this?



I had the same problem, and I found this page very helpful: https://c-nergy.be/blog/?p=13390 Specifically, the following steps fixed it:

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all
sudo apt-get install xrdp

The page warns that you might lose local keyboard/mouse input if you reboot after the first step; the second step will fix it.
