Question Xubuntu 6.06 + MS Remote Desktop


Anyone got Xubuntu working with Gnome Remote Connection Manager or kdrc? I installed both via the package manager but kdrc doesnt run and Gnome remote connection manager comes back with a no database error. Anyone know of how to get either one working in Xubuntu? Thanks!

If you haven't already, try running them in a terminal to get a more detailed error. It could be that the Gnome program looks in your ~/.gnome directory for a config file. If you don't have Gnome installed, then it won't exist.

I use myself rdesktop and grdesktop. You can also try tsclient which is a good client for a ms remote desktop connection.

Did you do a base install with Xubuntu and install grdesktop from the package manager/apt-get? If so, were there any special configs you had to do to get it to work?


seneschal- I'll try running grdesktop via the terminal tonite. I'll post the error message if it outputs anything. thanks!

It is not working for me either. I found easier to simply install vncserver on the Windows machine and then hit it from my Ubuntu machine. VNC is perhaps slower, but it works well across platforms. If installing VNC server on Windows is not a problem for you, I'd recommend it instead.

Unhappy

MegaManX- I have servers out there that we access via RDP. So, its a bit more secure then using VNC.

seneschal- When I access gnome-rdp via the term as a normal user I get a pop-up box that say's "Error during the connection to database." The next error window says, "Error in query: CREATE TABLE version (id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, dbversion VARCHAR(10)) Error:libsqlite3.so.0".

The terminal show's these errors:
stoo@stoo-laptop:~$ gnome-rdp

Unhandled Exception: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
in <0x0000a> GnomeRDP.Sqlite:FreeResult ()
in <0x00064> GnomeRDP.Configuration:CreateDatabase ()
in <0x00137> GnomeRDP.MainApp:InitializeComponent ()
in <0x000d0> GnomeRDP.MainApp:.ctor (System.String[] args)
in <0x00019> GnomeRDP.MainApp:Main (System.String[] args)

Any ideas? Or should I just run Gnome | KDE instead?

MrCheeks! Thanks! The tsclient worked like a charm and the GUI is pretty slick. Still a little curious on why the krdc & gnome-rdp doesnt work. If anyone figures it out let me know. Thanks!
