What I do when I want to use mine like that is set up x11vnc-server and then run it through XRDP (and choose the console option). It's faster than stock VNC... Don't ask me why, lol. I haven't gotten instructions for that yet, I don't think.
If I remember right, after a reboot, you have to connect, close the connection, and then reconnect back using the XRDP+VNC option. I don't have any installation instructions for that setup on hand though. I can work it out and post them if you like.
This is likely where I went 'rouge' in that I didn't use x11vnc-server.. I had notes on that,.. at least I believe and have misplaced them. so I had forget that.
As I was starting to have other 'OS' Kernel issues (the mouse and keyboard wasn't working correctly) I nuked that partition from Windows, and will rebuild. Maybe it'll survive as I am of course getting grub 'errors' since that partition is gone.
Is Remmina ceashing when RDP to older servers like Server 2008 R2? That’s the only server giving me issues with Remmina. Try freerdp or rdesktop through command line and see if you have a better experience.
@dafyre I didn't ever get back to needing this until now. How were you able to achieve this? I use Fedora 28 and the Cinnamon desktop.
Sadly, no, I haven't. From what I can tell, Fedora 28 (probably 29 too) use Wayland by default. I haven't found a way to get it working yet. I tried switching the Login Screen to use X first, but even that didn't help.
Have you tried disabling Wayland instead?
I hadn't thought about that. I'll have to do a fresh install and see how that's done, unless there's a working VNC Server package in Fedora 29...
Just edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf and uncomment WaylandEnable=false and then restart. You will have only two options GNOME and GNOME Classic.
That gets me one step closer. I can get XRDP to connect to the local VNC server, but the user has to log in (locally) first... :face_with_cold_sweat:
