I have been using windows remote desktop from remmina, what i feel so awkward is I don't see the save password button enabled, I need to frequently use my remote connection, and don't like entering username, passwords, etc, everytime...
I found out the solution: just rename the Quick Connect appearing in the TextBox to your favorite name, and it is done!
Also make sure you own the
.remmina folder (and all its contents).
$ ls -l --directory ~/.remmina/
Your user name should appear on the ls record like:
drwx------ 2 username username 4096 Jan 1 12:15 /home/username/.remmina
If root owns this file, You can correct the permissions like:
# chown --reference ~/ --recursive ~/.remmina/
#Implies "run as root" (eg with
sudo), as only root may change ownership of files.
chownto copy the ownership of
~/, which bash expands before the command gets executed, and points to your home folder.
Had the same problem, discovered that there is a bug using snap - removed the snap and reinstalled from remmina repository for ubuntu. Also made sure the permissions were set on ~/.remmina. Works fine now. This is on Xubuntu 16.10. Seems that others have also noted that the issue relates to Xubuntu.
sudo snap remove remmina
[Get repo details from remmina site ]
sudo apt install remmina
~/.remmina if it doesn't exists and check what you own
You need to save your connection,
total connection not only your password.
