xrdp access to SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2

  1. Launch suse-sles-11-sp2-v1.00.i386 ami.
  2. Connect with ssh as root.
  3. Use yast to install xkeyboard-config and *gnome* packages. 
  4. Download the latest xrdp package from www.xrdp.org.
  5. Compile and install it.
  6. Add /usr/local/lib/xrdp to /etc/ld.so.conf
  7. Run "ldconfig -v". 
  8. For an en-gb keyboard mapping download km-0809.ini from this very useful blog post.
  9. Disable /etc/profile.d/ec2.sh by running chmod +t /etc/profile.d/ec2.sh
  10. Start xrdp and xrdp-sesman with /etc/xrdp/xrdp.sh start 
  11. You should now be able to connect using RDP using sesman-Xvnc when you get the drop-down menu as long as you have the RDP port allowed through in your current security group.
