I installed the latest ubuntu desktop and when I install xrdp I get a grey screen when I connect from windows rdc. this works fine in ubuntu 12.04.
I found several solutions but they are not really what I want. I would like for the ubuntu desktop to function with xrdp.
I have tried pretty much every post on xrdp "grey screen". I was able to get the xfe desktop to work but I really want the ubuntu desktop to work.
I did the following to install xrdp:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install xrdp
Restarted the ubuntu 14.04 desktop machine.
RDC from windows results in a grey screen with an "x" cursor.
The process of doing the update and installing xrdp works fine for ubuntu 12.04 desktop and I can get into the desktops via windows RDC just fine. But 14.04 desktop gives a greay screen.
