I have been trying to get rdesktop to work in my gnome setup. Been following the howto at http://news.softpedia.com/news/Windo...re-59314.shtml
Running rdesktop works really good for me and I get into windows and all, but I can't seem to make it just display the explorer tray-bar. For me it displays a whole 1280x1024 desktop that my windows runs on.
I have made the addition of adding "NoDesktop" to the registry, and I think it works because I can't right-click on the desktop and there are no icons on it.
The command I run to start rdesktop is
rdesktop -u <user> -p - -g1280x1000 -a16 -rsound:remote -b -D -s "c:\seamlessrdpshell.exe c:\Windows\explorer.exe" -c 'c:\' 192.168.10.242
But I still get the ugly background from vista there...
