Thread: Remote desktop in Gnome not working in openSUSE 13.1

  1. #1

    Default Remote desktop in Gnome not working in openSUSE 13.1

    Hello everyone.

    I was running OpenSUSE 12.3 and my VPN and Remote Desktop worked perfectly for SSH, VNC, and RDP. I ran the 13.1 upgrade and it installed with no issues. But now I cannot connect with remote desktop. The VPN connection works fine, and I can start the Remote Desktop application. I can connect with SSH, but both VNC and RDP do nothing. No screen blink, no error, just nothing.

    Anyone have an idea where I can look? (I did turn off the firewall, too.)

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi Matt,

    I've just installed a fresh copy of 13.1 (XFCE) and I get the same results for XRDP.

    I can authenticate but just get a blank black screen.

    Hi Matt,

    I get the same results with KDE (just a black screen, after authenticating into my 13.1 box via XRDP).

    Hi Chris,
    Right before I went to bed last night I think I found the problem. In /var/log/messages I see that there are certificate errors. It is trying to ask if I want to accept the certificate, but cannot because there is no standard input device.

    I don't know how to fix that, so I'll have to do some more reading.

    Can you try a remote desktop session and then check the end of /var/log/messages to see if you are getting the same error?

    Hi Matt,

    This is what I am getting with KDE at the moment.

    Well, that is definitely not the error I was getting. In your log file, this looks suspicious to me:
    ERROR] bind error on port '3350': 98 (Address already in use)

    I am unfamiliar with port 3350 so I looked it up and it is registered to FINDVIATV. I have no idea what that means, but I'm fairly certain we are looking at two different issues. I'm guessing for your problem you should do a

    netstat -an | grep 3350

    and see what is using that port.

    Hi Matt,

    I agree, we do seem to have different errors.

    I will leave it for now, and post again once I have got it all working. I found it hard to get XRDP to work on 12.3

    Thanks for your help and for getting back to me.

    Wow. Still having this same issue in OpenSUSE 13.1 Thought by now it would have been fixed.

    Does anybody have an idea about this?

    When connecting to gnome and after the login if it shows blank screen with only cursor then you need to load the rdp session in fall back mode.

    You can look into this.
