Connect to GNU / Linux with Remote Desktop


GNU / Linux was basically used with CUI without a desktop environment.

However, recently, I often find it convenient to be able to connect to a GUI GNU / Linux environment by remote desktop, so I made a note of how to do it.

Environmental setting

Use xrdp.

Package installation

sudo apt install xrdp lxde

Edit configuration file

Edit /etc/xrdp/xrdp.ini.


Comment out sections other than Xorg.

Specify session

Specified in ~ / .xsession.


Disable encryption

Measures for this.

gsettings set org.gnome.Vino require-encryption false

Service start

sudo service xrdp restart

Open port

Change iptables to open port 3389.


If successful, it will look like this.


Since I often remote desktop to another Windows environment, it is convenient to be able to connect to GNU / Linux with the same glue.

It is assumed to be used in a LAN.
