As others have asked, please remove the tigervnc dependency. fow0ryl's suggested optdepends should be perfect. Dependency on tigervnc is unnecessary and if you have tightvnc or realvnc installed it creates a dependency conflict and you are forced to uninstall them in order to install xrdp which shouldn't be the case.

Optional dependencies should typically be marked as optional.

The point is, that tigervnc is not needed for some setups. And tigervnc itself depends on many packages itself. And each dependend package could have dependencies itself. In fact we get a dependency tree, and potential problems without any need. So if someone wants to use thightvnc and xrdp that's not possible because tigervnc blocks installation of tightvnc. The clean way is to define only those packages as dependent which are realy depend. The other packages belong to optdepends.

By the way. What is the answer to this question: Why tigervnc is defined as dependency while xorg-xrdp ist not?

@Ta180m tigervnc is a small package in community. What is the problem?

I also agree with @fow0ryl that the tigervnc dependency should be removed since it isn't necessary when using Xorg. Can the maintainer please make the edit that @fow0ryl suggested?

@Ta180m done: thanks for pointing that out.

Can the maintainer add the line --with-imlib2=yes to the PKGBUILD when running ./configure? This enables support for non-BMP backgrounds for the login screen.

It would be very nice if the dependency to "tigervnc" could be removed. VNC is not a real dependency. Its possible to use i.e. Xorg instead. Since I do not use VNC I have to edit PKGBUILD every build time...

To point to all optional dependencies you can add:

optdepends=('tigervnc: vnc support'
            'xorgxrdp: Xorg drivers'
            'xorgxrdp-glamor: Xorg xrdp drivers with glamor enabled'
            'xorgxrdp-nvidia: Xorg xrdp drivers with nvidia GPU support'
            'pulseaudio-module-xrdp: pulseaudio sound support')

For me I can still not login to Xvnc via xrdp.

But xrdp-sesman spawns a Xvnc server that you can connect to with vnc if you set a password in ~/.vnc/sesman_passwd-user@host:display

Still the same situation as @JoeColl [Xvnx] not working [Xorg] is working, if you install xorgxrdp too. (Tried to connect with Remmina)
