The plugin code was updated to reflect the changes in the remmina code.

I'm the plugin author, I'm 100% absolutely sure my code doesn't use directly or indirectly the freerdp library.
You are confusing the rdesktop plugin (which doesn't use freerdp at all) with the rdp plugin (which uses the freerdp library).

I agree with eduncan911 about freerdp dependency. Without freerdp remmina spits out the following during startup:

Failed to load plugin: /usr/lib/remmina/plugins/
Error: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

What is more, there's no RDP option in quick connect form. Explicit freerdp installation solves the problem.

For completeness sake:

community/remmina 1:1.2.0rcgit.11-1

Same issue as jvybihal for me as well.

Plugin crashes for me (either remmina or remmina-git, with -DREMMINA_VER_1_1=OFF)

$ remmina
Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged.
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Looks like plugin issue to me, not remmina issue.

there's no dependency of freerdp on the remmina-plugin-rdesktop.
If remmina crashes the causes can be:
1) an issue with remmina itself
2) you compiled the remmina-plugin-rdesktop for the wrong version (see the PKGBUILD)

I think there's dependency on "freerdp"?

Fresh install of Arch and Remmina + this plugin on a new laptop... Remmina segment faults when selecting RDP after a reboot. Loading on command line, got errors on Remmina that it couldn't load the RDP plugin.

After some digging:

$ ldd /usr/lib/remmina/plugins/
(...snip...) => not found => not found => not found

# pacman -S freerdp

Then I run the previous command:

$ ldd /usr/lib/remmina/plugins/
(...snip...) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f771ea0e000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f771e767000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f771e47e000)

And Remmina now is able to select RDP without crashing.

The remmina package in community has been updated to 1.2

I suppose the PKGBUILD should now default to :

Muflone commented on 2015-12-08 23:14

This package was updated to work with both remmina and remmina-git package.
The actual default configuration is set for remmina 1.1 package (from the community repository). To use this package for remmina-git >= 1.2 the PKGBUILD must be edit with the line:
(please note the dot at the end of the line)
