Hi, I just upgraded my linux box from 11.10 to 12.04 last night. Everything went smooth except for one issue. I use xrdp over ssh to connect to the machine remotely. After the upgrade on the first boot I had an issue where it said failed to load gnome. Well, I found a rather hidden drop down menu in the default x-gui and managed to get back to my xfce desktop by choosing it. So, that's not an issue anymore when logged in locally.
The last time I did an upgrade I didn't have this remote issue with it trying to load gnome. It just stuck with the default xfce which is what I want because this is an old machine and xfce works great remotely.
So, now when I try to connect to my ubuntu machine remotely using Windows mstsc (remote desktop)I get the same failed to load gnome message I got on first boot up. However, I can't change anything on the remote session to choose xfce like I did locally. Here's my screen shots and my xrdp.ini file.
I can't determine what gui/session environment the xrdp specifies but I don't see gnome or xfce in the file. It used to just connect to xfce fine before the upgrade. It also didn't have this issue previous upgrade. Any ideas how I cant get xrdp to load xfce again?
Xrdp login (note I've always used the sesman-Xvnc to connect to desktop using xrpd. Their are other drop downs for just xrdp but that doesn't work and apparently requires very low resolution.
Sry couldn't figure out how to turn on html code and img tags. Thx for any/all help! I'd rather use xrdp but I'll try a vpn connection if necessary but this has always worked for my remote needs.
