ubuntu 19.10 xrdp blank screen

Installed xrdp about a month after Ubuntu 19.10 was installed.
Read somewhere that if you created a new user ie. "useradd -m someuser" AFTER xrdp was installed then xrdp seems to work.
And that worked for me.

I met the same question earlier

Ubuntu 19.10

I installed xrdp manually and add ".xsession" file under home dir manually.
the content in file is :

But I can only see black screen through RDP from win10.

then I delete the ".xsession" file , It worked, I don't know why.

I suggest you to install using this script

and delete the .xsession file to have a try
