xrdp only works with user that never connected locally


Recommended Posts

board : Banana pi M2 zero
OS : Armbian_23.02.0-trunk_Bananapim2zero_sid_edge_6.1.11_xfce_desktop.img.xz

The same error exist for newest Debian releases.
Only Users that never opened an X11 session locally can connect using RDP (xrdp)

maybe a little late to the party. 

got the same problem on my orange pi 4 LTS


i guess the problem is that u can setup a auto login with the current user, therefore the user is already logedin locally at startup.


by adding these lines to the /etc/xrdp/startwm.sh file (after the comments at the top) i got it to work.

. $HOME/.profile
