Welcome to LQ !

rdesktop used to be included in 4MLinux long time ago, but it is not anymore. However, you can still install it thanks to the partial support for Debian, Fedora and Slackware packages, which is provided by 4MLinux.

1) Download and install rdesktop
Code:
wget http://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-14.2/slackware/xap/rdesktop-1.8.3-i486-1.txz && installpkg rdesktop-1.8.3-i486-1.txz
2)Download and install one more package required by rdesktop:
Code:
wget http://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-14.2/slackware/l/libsamplerate-0.1.8-i486-1.txz && installpkg libsamplerate-0.1.8-i486-1.txz
3) Create symbolic links that are missing in 4MLinux:
Code:
ln -s /lib/libcrypto.so /lib/libcrypto.so.1
ln -s /usr/lib/libssl.so /lib/libssl.so.1
Done! Now try to run rdesktop in your terminal.

You can activate Desktop icons by clicking on the IdeskON/OFF icon:
http://4mlinux.blogspot.com/2015/07/...x-desktop.html

Basically, it should be now enough to create a symbolic link:
Code:
ln -s /usr/bin/rdesktop /root/Desktop
However, due to the way how the rdesktop program works, you need a script to start your connection.
1) Create the script.
Code:
touch /usr/bin/rdesktop.sh
2) Set its permissions.
Code:
chmod 775 /usr/bin/rdesktop.sh
3) Put the contents into your script (*).
Code:
echo "rdesktop -u john 143.210.123.456" > /usr/bin/rdesktop.sh
4) And finally, create Desktop icon.
Code:
ln -s /usr/bin/rdesktop.sh /root/Desktop
(*) Do not follow the strange way shown by me. Just use a text editor ;-)
