Making an RDP Terminal Server with Ubuntu Linux

If you've ever tried to build a multi-user terminal server with Linux, and I'm using Ubuntu in this example, you know that it can be a bit of a pain. Well it doesn't need to be because the guys at C-Nergy in Belgium have built an xRDP install and configuration scrip that doesn't just give you a working XRDP install, but configures it as a working terminal server (multi-user) environment right out of the box.
With this script, you can have a fully working Ubuntu terminal server in minutes. And since it uses RDP you get great performance and compatibility across all platforms without needing specialized tools.
If you are using Linux based desktops as access clients, I recommend the Remmina RDP client tool, it's the bomb.
Some key limitations... this script only allows you to have one login per user (so log out from the console before trying to access it with your own account to test), only has been tested on a few versions of Ubuntu (but current and LTS both up to date and both back at least one version are supported and tested), and only uses the default Gnome based environment.
On default install, I found that there was a permissions issue with the TLS key file. You just need to apply the instructions here for that and you are off to the races.

For those GNOME environments, I'm guessing this only works with Xorg?

This is what I've been using for a while now. It works great for just me.
@black3dynamite -- yeah, Xorg only as far as I know.
