Installing xrdp 0.9.1 on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial#
xrdp is defacto the default RDP server for Linux systems sharing with VNC the remote access solution olympus. I personally found it more resource friendly and feature rich compared to VNC solutions I tried.
The only problem I found with
xrdp is that current Ubuntu LTS release Xenial 16.04 has a way outdated 0.6.1-2 version of xrdp in the packages repo. This version has no shared clipboard support, which makes remote support/remote access a tedious task.
xrdp currently in its 0.9.3 version and it would be really nice to have a more recent package, rather than installing it from sources, like many solutions propose.
Well, no need to compile
xrdp from sources (unless you want to), because you can leverage a ppa from hermlnx that has
xrdp 0.9.1-7 already built for amd64 and i386 systems
# all you need is sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hermlnx/xrdp sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install xrdp
You can also try a
deb package of
xrdp 0.9.2 -- https://github.com/suminona/xrdp-ru-audio
