  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?
