i wanted to configure remote desktop on my perfectly running Ubuntu desktop 12.04 LTS version. I followed the below steps: sudo apt-get install xrdp --- this went well
Nothing was coming up from remote machine, so i then did the following
echo "gnome-session --session=ubuntu-2d" > ~/.xsession
even this didn't help and started throwing some error.
Then i ran the following command: sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback
Then i changed issued the following command:
echo "gnome-session -- session=gnome-fallback" > ~/.xsession
Still no use. It just shows login screen, once i type in the password, it is just blank (not black, but default ubuntu screen) with no icons. However, remote desktop now works great.
Can someone help me, getting my normal ubuntu desktop back, please??
