Installing XRDP on Fedora 19

Installing the XRDP packages is as easy as using yum to bring them in from the Fedora repos:
yum -y install xrdp
But before you can actually use XRDP you will need to add the service descriptions to the systemd system and set them to start. There appears to be no documentation available on this even though the process is quite simple if you are used to the process. These commands are all that you need.
systemctl enable xrdp.service systemctl start xrdp.service systemctl enable xrdp-sesman.service systemctl start xrdp-sesman.service firewall-cmd --permanent --add-port=3389/tcp
The final command opens the firewall port used by RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) enabling you to actually use the system in a useful way. At this point, you XRDP installation should be working.
