Till now I'm working with ubuntu 12.04 on a standalone pc (no display,mouse,keyboard).
I installed xrdp and i'm using windows remote desktop connection.
It's working fine with juste one adjustment : put that in the .xsession
This morning I tried installing ubuntu 14.04, xrdp, .xsession adjustment and ... no working anymore. Only a grey screen with a X mouse cursor.
After lot of search and reading on internet it seems it's not more possible to use ubuntu-2d with 14.04. Only xfce is working. But I don't want to use xfce !
So what's the solution ?
- xrdp with windows remote connection : works only with xfce
- teamviewer : it's working but everything I do is visible on the server (if a screen is connected) and the session remains open if I do not logout before I quit teamviewer client (so someone can connect a keyboard to the server and use it)
- x2go : seems not working fine with 14.04
- desktop sharing : not working. I'm using ultravnc and I got No security type suitable for RFB 3.3 supported
- ... ?
It's so easy with windows ... The only thing I want is to connect to my server, open a remote session and work. Is it impossible mission ?
