Upstream only tags on "master" branch and "master" branch is only updated on release. Using the "master" branch (the one with the tags) makes this package identical to the "xrdp" package: therefore, rather pointless. There is an "xrdp-devel-git" package that uses the "devel" branch and is more of a "-git" package than one which is identical to the non-git package. Those wishing to complain about tags, use this package (or "xrdp" as they are identical). Those wishing to have the latest -git commits, use the "xrdp-devel-git" package.

orphaned, since there seem to be issues I don't see me having time to fix in the near future.

I would be happy if somebody could adopt the package.

Using 'sesman-X11rdp' as login option gave me:

starting connecting
connect error
connect error
connect error
connect error
connection problem, giving up
some problem

Using sesman-Xvnc works.

The PAM configuration is hardly correct:

Something like this does the trick:


auth required
account required broken_shadow

Is there any movement on getting this to work consistantly? Anyone know what the PAM config should look like?

Also where should the /etc/xrdp/ be pointing? What is the file on that holds x session info?

This was orphaned, probably by realturner, although I didn't receive an answer. Thanks.

I adopted it and pushed the PKGBUILD as in my repository.

You are welcome to open pull requests for the groups and/or the pam when they are either finished or you stop working on them.

I wouldn't want to take over this package unless I end up using xrdp regularly...

BTW, it's still broken after my fix. Upstream added tsusers and tsadmins groups that you have to join before you can connect. I have a local PKGBUILD change to create those groups during installation. Upstream also changed the default PAM config file so it is no longer compatible with non-Debian distros. I have a tentative fix for that as well, which I am testing.

And sent a direct email to realturner asking for update or orphaning.
So 2 weeks from now, somebody can request orphaning on the aur-general ML in case nothing happened and I forget to do that.

Thanks for the pull request, merged to my repository.

I have to go now, but I later today I probably ask for this package to be orphaned.
Somebody else (congiwu?) can also do that and pick it up. I would also be fine with that.

I hit the following error when building with JonnyJD's PKGBUILD:
sed -i 's|__BASE__|/usr|' /etc/init.d/xrdp;
sed: can't read /etc/init.d/xrdp: No such file or directory

Here's a fix (I sent a pull request):

Also, after installing, I had to run:
sudo xrdp-keygen xrdp /etc/xrdp/rsakeys.ini

This is due to

I fixed JonnyJD's PKGBUILD (and sent a pull request) to generate rsakeys.ini if it doesn't exist yet during install/upgrade:

I also updated to new VCS package style (in my repository)
