Preparation

  1. Start with a clean Raspbian installation.
    • Refer to my Installing Raspbian on Raspberry Pi article for assistance, and options for installing to SD or USB storage devices.
    • Refer to my Raspberry Pi Configuration article for assistance with the initial setup of your Raspberry Pi using raspi-config. In addition to the default options, a Memory Split value of at least 64 MB is required for running a Graphical User Interface (GUI), and up to 256 MB if you intend on performing graphics-intensive tasks.
  2. Ensure all the latest updates and packages have been applied. Use the following command:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y
  3. Ensure the latest Raspberry Pi firmware has been applied. Use the following command:
    sudo rpi-update

  1. Anyone succeeded to install xrdp on a Pi with the 2016-05-27-raspbian-jessie image? It says xrdp service is dead instead of active / running 🙁

    As my Pi 2 running the Ubiquiti controller again “crashed” (returned an error on every command on the CLI and refused to reboot), I’m trying to set it up again with the latest Jessie image and am experiencing some problems (xrdp not working, permission denied error when trying to SSH directly after updating the Pi’s software etc.).

    I’m trying to find out what’s happening, but my Linux knowledge is rather limited. I read the kernel has been updated in a recent Raspbian release. Is it possible this causing the issues?
