    Question xrdp black screen on opensuse 42.1

    Hi
    I'm using opensuse 42.1 and I want to gain access via rdp.
    I installed xrdp, and I can login to it, but the screen is black .I seems it steals my mouse pointer, and nothing has shown. I tried using xrdp on a VirtualMachine, and it works fine. I can login and then use a Gnome environment. But I don't know what happened to the physical server which I wanted to connect to its Gnome?
    I don't know does xrdp have logfile or something.

    Please guide me a bit
    Thanks

    As I mentioned earlier, I installed xrdp. And I didn't configure anything. I used it by its default configuration in both tests.

    Apologies for the typos earlier.

    RDP implies two machines; a remote desktop that you are trying to access, and a local desktop, keyboard, etc. that you operate directly.

    I understand that the remote host is running a standard (KDE?) Leap-42.1, and that you have installed the xrdp package from the openSUSE-Leap-42.1-Oss repository. I do not understand what software you are using on the local machine to connect to the remote desktop.

    I use RDP (but not xdrp)extensively in a prodution environment for workers to access a farm of virtual desktops, and would like to understand any potential problems before we plan the inevitable upgrade (probably from 11.4-Evergreen to Leap). Given sufficient information, I would try to replicate the symptoms you describe.

    Just a wild guess, but ...
    Have you installed xrdp as a client on the local machine and omitted to install and run it as a server on the remote host? If your remote virtual machine was a VirtualBox instance you could be connecting to the VirtualBox integrated RDP server.
