Problems setting up XRDP on RP

Hello everyone,

I installed XRDP via SSH and can’t connect (from my Win-8-Laptop via Remote desktop).

The connection log of the win-remote-desktop says:

connection to sesman ip port 3350
sesman connect ok
sending login info to session manager, please wait…
xrdp_mm_process_login_response: login succesful for display
started connecting
connecting to 5910
error - problem connecting

My network-config is like this:
osmc@osmc:~$ ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr b8:27:eb:3c:ee:c9
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:

Can anybody help?

Thank you very much!

Kodi doesn’t use X or the framebuffer, so this won’t work.
You need something like the dispmanx VNC server.
(But be aware that sending OpenGL gui or video though a VNC link will be very laggy).

Hi. Used this guide: link and it works fine. It is laggy but I just need it in case of admin work because the raspberry is inside an old tube radio :grinning:

Thank you very much!

I know this an old topic but after searching all over i’ve seen this question answered the same way every time and I have the same question but looking for a different answer, because I’m more precise in knowing what i want to do… for me I don’t want to connect to Kodi’s GUI. That type of operation is best left for programs like Kore or Web Interfaces… I want a remote desktop environment (lxde) so i can manage certain other things natively with ease I’ve installed LXDE and xrdp. and that should work but its not my suspicion is there is a vnc server installed that i don’t know about that is blocking xrdp from operating properly, again this is the type of thing i want a remote desktop environment for so i can do things with a GUI that are painful to do through ssh.
