I get an X window and then I get a

login successful for display, started connection.

Then I get a

connecting to "127.0.0.1 5911". tcp connected then error - problem connecting.

This is from the Connection Log dialog box. It stays up in RDC window.
If I click OK, I get a dialog box from xrdp with Module dropdown box defaulted to sesman-Xvnc and 2 input fields for username and password.
If I complete the entries and click Ok it comes right back to the Connection Log.

Is it a port number issue?
And do I have to export my DISPLAY from a Terminal window or in the .profile?
I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

  • I fixed the problem by installing mate desktop. Apparently there are known problems with the other desktops through RDP. – Lannie LeBlanc Aug 8 at 22:56
