Bounty: 50

I am connecting to an Ubuntu 18.04LTS server in Azure, from Win 10, with xrdp.

When connecting, I see a few options for the session, including Xorg, X11rdp, Xvnc, console, vnc-any, sesman-any, neutrinord-any.

How can I get a gnome session?

I followed this, but I do not see the gnome-styled Authentication Required popup shown there.

EDIT I have found file /etc/xrdp/xrdp.ini contains related info. I am not certain I have to modify this file to allow for Gnome desktop.

Plus, this (in Spanish) shows a screen capture with a session type in xrdp named sesman-Xvnc.
I don’t have that entry in /etc/xrdp/xrdp.ini, which further suggests me I have to adapt that file.


Get this bounty!!!
