Thread: OpenSuse 11-1 KDE and xrdp

    Default OpenSuse 11-1 KDE and xrdp

    Hello Community,
    I am not very familiar with with LINUX and want to setup my Suse System to be accessed via RDP. This worked fine so far using the GNOME Desktop environment but if i want to use KDE only, rdp is not working. Does anyone can give me help here how to get KDE working with Remote Desktop Protocol. (xrdp is installed for sure)

    Thanks,

    Harry

    Are you using rdp to connect to a windows machine? If so, kde uses krdp and not gnome's grdp. Just install and configure it like you did for grdp.
    vnc viewer works fine for connecting to linux boxes and is available for windows clients. Start it from a terminal using the command:
    vncviewer ipaddress:1
    where 1 is the screen number.

    I find for KDE that xrdp works better than vnc. This Xrdp tutorial is for 11.1, might help:
    Windows Linux RDP Remote Desktop Connections using openSUSE as Client or Server (terminal server)

    Thanks for the tips.

    I tried today and if i try to connect to the xrdp server from my windows client i get the following message :

    connecting to sesman ip 127.0.0.1 port 3350
    sesman connect ok
    sending login info to sesman
    login successfull for display 10
    started connecting
    rdpx11 channel is not present



    the firewall is open. i have done this days ago using the GNOME Desktop and it worked fine but since i have installed new and decided for the KDE Desktop i have this problem.

    do i need to manually modify a config file?

    thanks in advance

    There's a bug about that here: https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=455880

    You will see that it's supposed to be resolved -- but perhaps it's not if you're using the wrong packages. Can you please execute this command in a console window and post the results back here. The return will show your packages:
    Code:
    rpm -qa | egrep "xrdp|xorg-x11-server-d|xorg-x11-server-r"
    Tip: copy/paste it into the console window.

    Hi

    The delay is because my Xrdp stopped working and took a while to fix. A different bug surfaced (different from your issue) which I was just now able to fix and am now back on the air with rdp in openSUSE.

    Here's two quotes from the bug report 455880:
    I get the same error:
    "rdpx11 channel is not present"

    But it does work !
    I can log in and everything is as it should.

    the xorg.x.config.display11 issue should now be fixed in latest package. [the seg fault is a x64 issue that has not been resolved yet.]


    you'll get "rdpx11 channel is not present" when using any RDP client other than
    our special version of rdesktop included in opensuse 11.1. it's not an error,
    it just means the normal RDP protocol will be used for rendering instead of our
    much more efficient x11 channel.
    So if it's working for you despite the message, no need to worry. But if it's not working for you and stops at the error, I suggest you add the Nomad Factory repo at Yast --> Software --> Software Repositories and then use Software Management in Yast to upgrade to these RPMs:
    xorg-x11-server-rdp-7.3.99-7.1
    xrdp-0.4.1-33.1
    xorg-x11-server-dmx-7.3.99-24.1

    Here's the address: Index of /repositories/home:/dreveman:/nomad/openSUSE_11.1

    Hi Swerdna,

    i did what you said. I Included the repo in the Software Repositories and pressed some buttons. I dont know really what i did but after all he replaced a lot of packages. And, TaTa, xrdp is working now. Thanks again for the help.

    regards

    Hi Swerdna,

    I have read your tutorial regarding the installation of RDP on Suse.

    I am using an x64 11.2 Suse Linux. Although you said it is no longer supported in 11.2 I tried it out anyway.

    Surprisingly it worked out, well almost.

    I am able to establish a connection to my linux box from my windows mashine. I can even log in, however once i do that, the only thing I see is the connection log.

    Code:
    connecting to sesman ip 127.0.0.1 port 3350
    sesman connect ok
    sending login info to sesman
    login successful for display10
    started connecting
    rpdx11 channel not present
    x11 rdp Server started
    the name org.x.config.display10 was not provided by any .service files
    I believe I have all the newest repositories.. Maybe you can help? You seem like an expert

    I tried VNC as an alternative, but that didn't work at all... Would be great if you could give me some guidance
