This is my first time (please be gentle) using Linux.
I have just received a clean install of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (without graphical interface) with just SSH added on a remote server.
I am currently trying to enable remote desktop to this server using SSH commands. (I have received username (root) and password for SSH - I am trying to use these while logging into remote desktop.)
As of this time I added all of the 4 repositories (main, universe, multiverse, restricted), successfully installed xrdp and Xfce 4 using the tutorial How to use xRDP for remote access to Ubuntu 14.04 (well at least I think it was successful).
My problem now is, that after establishing connection via Remote Desktop Manager (on my Windows 10) I see this:
And after filling out the username and password I see this:
The message says:
connecting to sesman ip 126.96.36.199 port 3350
sesman connect ok
sending login info to session manager, please wait...
login failed for display 0
I tried to troubleshoot using this guide: 18.04.3 LTS XRDP "login failed for display: 0" using these lines of code:
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core sudo apt-get -y install xserver-xorg-input-all
But to no avail.
What went wrong? What does it mean that that the login failed for display 0?
