Install and setup xRDP


I want to install and setup xRDP on Ubuntu 17.04 so that I can access the desktop through remote desktop.

I'v found bits and pieces, but it does not make sense. What I need is a tutorial that can describe step by step what to be done first and subsequent steps.

If you type "xrdp tutorial ubuntu" in a Google search the first thing that comes up is a 3 step process for installing it on Ubuntu.

However, just to be clear: xRDP is used to access MS-Windows remote deskstops FROM Linux. It is NOT used to access Linux desktops. For Linux desktops you can use a product like VNC or X2Go.
