Hi !

Thanks for your investigation - but nothing changes.
Have you seen my log ?? I am not sure, that all dependencies are really met.
For other distros, I know, that the connecting user must be in some groups,
like 'tsusers' or something like this. This is not the case with my arch setup.
I say this, because the log shows:
>XRDP-sesman[30667]: pam_unix(xrdp-sesman:session): session opened for user mba by (uid=0)
The mba user has uid=1000.

Just an amateurs note.

Give 0.8.0-4 a try.

Hi !
I re-installed and this time, it builds. But then, I get the same as
>>1. Whenever I connect to the server, a dialog pops up complaining "VNC error - problem connecting", forces me to click "OK" button, then it allows me to enter.<<
For my case, pressing the OK button, just repeats the sequence,
no login possible.
If I specify no password at the client, no dialog appears
at all and login fails.
What I know from other installations is, that there should be a login dialog, where I can additionally specify the module to use [found as sections in the xrdp.ini].

I see some weird entry in the logs and could provide them for both cases,
but where to post ? Here ??

Put my logs into this forum post:

Thanks bidulock. The services are working like a charm now. But there're still some minor issues.

1. Whenever I connect to the server, a dialog pops up complaining "VNC error - problem connecting", forces me to click "OK" button, then it allows me to enter.

2. Some garbage appears in my home directory: thinclient_drives & xrdp-chansrv.log

I don't know if you can resolve it, or that's upstream matter?

Thanks again.

Sorry, typo in --with-systemdsystemunitdir=/usr/lib/systemd/system
0.8.0-3 is corrected.

Since update to 0.8.0-2 I cannot find xrdp.service and xrdp-sesman.service. Have to use /etc/xrdp/ to control the program.

with this version : xrdp 0.6.1-1

Awesome not started

I Have change this :
nano /etc/xrdp/

SESSIONS="gnome-session blackbox fluxbox startxfce4 startkde xterm"
by :

SESSIONS="gnome-session blackbox fluxbox startxfce4 startkde awesome xterm"
