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 ======== On Fedora, /usr/bin/Xorg is a script that starts either /usr/libexec/Xorg.wrap, which is a SUID binary, or /usr/libexec/Xorg, if the former does not exist. Xrdp binary makes sure that SUID of the Xorg.wrap binary is not obeyed. However, the Xorg.wrap has an additional hurdle to clear, because by default, it will only allow users logged into the console to start it. So, in order to run the Xorg xrdp session via xrogxrdp, normally a user account not logged onto the console will be used. To avoid Xorg.wrap refusing to run, put the following into /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config: allowed_users = anybody 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. 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. 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 multi-user.target Then reboot.
