I installed xrdp on xfce4 using Kali Linux Rolling distribution. I'm able to successfully connect to rdp service via Microsoft Remote Desktop from my Mac Pro.

I am unsure, how would I go about fixing blackscreen after I connect. This seems to temporarily resolve after i stop the xrdp service using service xrdp stop & then restarting it. However, after my xfce4 session goes back to login screen due to obvious sleep mode or 'lock-screen', it goes black again.

I tried:

  1. customizing different scaling
  2. using various screen resolutions
  3. configured .Xclients to startxfce4
  4. configured .xsession to xfce4-session

To no avail, I could get this working.

What would be a permanent solution likely to be approached?
