Installation

The next step is to install the xrdp Remote Desktop Connection software.

  1. Install xrdp using the following command.
    sudo apt-get install xrdp -y

    The installation only takes a couple of minutes to complete, and includes all the prerequisite components such as vnc4server.

  2. Once the installation is complete, check the xrdp service status using the following command.
    /etc/init.d/xrdp status
  3. The command will produce output similar to the following.
     xrdp.service - LSB: Start xrdp and sesman daemons
       Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/xrdp)
       Active: active (running) since Fri 2015-10-23 20:00:00 AEDT; 1min ago
       CGroup: /system.slice/xrdp.service
               ├─7009 /usr/sbin/xrdp
               └─7011 /usr/sbin/xrdp-sesman
  4. Reboot your Raspberry Pi using the following command.
  5. sudo reboot

    Wait for your Raspberry Pi to finish rebooting before proceeding to the next step.

  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?
