Re: Problem in Connecting with XRDP on Fedora 16

I get the same error on F15, but it's intermittent. If I click the OK button and sign in again, it will let me in.

If that doesn't work for you, try restarting the xrdp service, and if that doesn't work, reboot the box.

Re: Problem in Connecting with XRDP on Fedora 16

I was having the same error in RHEL 6: [ERROR] another Xserver is already active on display... .

I was able to get xrdp to work by installing gnome packages. I do not have my initial list of gnome packages adding these got xrdp working:

Added packages:

(NOTE - many other packages were installed as dependencies. It is very possible that it was installation of one of the dependencies actually fixed this problem.)

Final list of gnome packages I have installed are:


I could not find any relationship of the xrdp error message to this fix. I made a guess that the error message may actually be a misrepresentation of the real error. This is why I tried installing additional gnome packages. Hope this helps someone else get by this problem.
