Restarts ======== Service restarts after RPM package upgrades have been disabled on purpose. This is to avoid a situation where an update is performed from within a session running on xrdp, which can then cause dnf to only perform part of the transaction and leave the system in a state that requires further manual intervention, including removal of duplicate packages etc. So, it will be up to the user/admin to restart xrdp service after any RPM package upgrade. This is in line with what other GUI systems like Xorg and Wayland do. xorgxrdp ======== Note that xorgxrdp is not installed and configured by default. Each build depends on specific binary version of Xorg, which tends to create very strict installation dependencies that can be an inconvenience in EPEL. SELinux ======= Please note that you may need to install xrdp-selinux package in order to get the required SELinux policy that will allow xrdp and associated processes to run successfully if SELinux is enabled. On versions of Fedora and RHEL that support weak dependencies, xrdp-selinux will be a recommended package. WARNING: The policy module contains a rule that permits unconfined_service_t processes to transition into unconfined_t. If xrdp is not the only service that runs as unconfined_service_t on your system, this policy will allow any other such service to transition as well. Default configuration in /etc/pam.d/xrdp-sesman uses password-auth for auth, account, password and session. This may result in an incorrect context for the processes in the session. Please adjust this file to match your desktop environment. An example for Gnome desktop is given in the file. TigerVNC >= 1.8.0 ================= TigerVNC 1.8.0 enables clipboard support by default (i.e. no need to run vncconfig), which may cause disconnections in xrdp. To avoid the issue, these can be added to [Xvnc] stanza in /etc/xrdp/sesman.ini: param=-AcceptCutText=0 param=-SendCutText=0 param=-SendPrimary=0 param=-SetPrimary=0 Of course, cut and paste support will not work with these set. Runlevel ======== If the system is configured to boot into graphical target, you may experience problems with xrdp Gnome sessions. In order to avoid this, put the system into multi user target. Like this: systemctl set-default Then reboot. VSOCK ======== An example of a how to set up xrdp with VSOCK can be found here: Please note that polkit rules for active sessions, allowing access to colord and repository updates are already shipped, but in a current, JavaScript format.
