Freerdp is the standard remmina rdp protocol while this plugin uses rdesktop as an alternative.

It does not require freerdp in any way.

Unfortunately remmina api has changed and the software will require some fixes but I'm too busy to work on it ATM.

Merge pulls are welcome

So you are probably using freerdp and not rdesktop.

I couldn't get rdp connections to work until I followed your suggestion of installing freerdp:

@thibaultmol rdesktop is alternative to freerdp. Even rdesktop itself does not require freerdp. It should not need it. Why do you think otherwise?

Why isn't freerdp a dependancy of this package. There's no situation where this package works without having freerdp installed as well, right?

@ananyab , same issue here, I fixed it with : sudo pacman -S freerdp

Tried to use this with remmina 1.4.7, the moment I choose RDESKTOP in the dropdown, remmina segfaults:

The remmina plugin was updated to work with remmina >= 1.3

@4khi1: Just noted, no need to install this plugin, just freerdp is enough!

The temporary solution is to change /usr/include/pango-1.0/pango/pango-coverage.h and /usr/include/pango-1.0/pango/pango-font.h Where it includes hb.h, it should include harfbuzz/hb.h instead.
