I can connect remotely using RDP to an Ubuntu MATE 14.04.2 desktop running xrdp but cannot connect to xrdp on Ubuntu Server 14.04.2 with Ubuntu MATE installed (
ubuntu-mate-desktop packages installed).
Does anyone know of the difference between the Ubuntu MATE ISO install and the Ubuntu Server plus Ubuntu MATE packages install that would explain this behaviour? Or better still a fix.
I’ve tried both these scenarios on the same hardware: ISO install works, server+packages does not. Message in server syslog:
Apr 28 14:56:53 hph9-server x-session-manager: WARNING: software acceleration check failed: Child process exited with code 1
The same problem is described here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/445485/ubuntu-14-server-and-xrdp
The related Launchpad bug states it’s fixed in 14.04.3 – yet it appears to have been fixed in Ubuntu MATE 14.04.2 desktop: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-session/+bug/1251281
