XRDP "Oh no! Something has gone wrong."


OS: CentOS 7
XRDP: rdp-0.9.1-5.el7.x86_64

A few months back, I updated XRDP and since I've been having this issue. When a new user logs in via XRDP, they'll receive the error "Oh no! Something has gone wrong". If I SSH and add a file to my desktop and then attempt to log in via XRDP, I also get the error.

One "fix" I currently have is to delete/move ~/.config/nautilus/desktop-metadata

Logging in locally via GUI with that user also seems to fix the issue for XRDP.

One more thing I noticed is that there is a new icon on the desktop called "thinclient_drives"

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

A quick scout around the internet (xrdp "something has gone wrong") suggests that some people have resolved this problem by using a different desktop environment other than Gnome e.g. MATE. Are you in a position to try that?

Have you considered creating an issue on the xrdp page? https://github.com/neutrinolabs/xrdp/issues

hydrurga, thanks for the reply. I will be trying XFCE, as I have other machines that seem to be working fine with XRDP and it. Yet, if I could fix this, I would be much better off.

I've tried
Code:
/usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon --debug
but I see no difference in the output between that of a working desktop and a non-working desktop.

I'll probably go ahead an submit a bug report to XRDP when I get a chance.

Thank you.

Ok. Sorry I couldn't find a direct fix for your problem. Let us know how you get on with Xfce, and whether the bug report turns up a solution that allows you to use Gnome (if you could link to the bug report from here, all the better).
