I'm trying to use Remmina on Ubuntu to remote into one of the servers at my work. However, after entering the connection information in I get the following error:

"You requested an H264 GFX mode for ser X@X.com, but your libfreedp does not support H264. Please check colour depth settings."

I am quite new to Ubuntu in general so I am not really sure what to do about the above error.

Could anybody help me out?



quoting from the following link:

in the profile Basic settings, change the colour depth untill you find the one that is supported by your server.

from that link
