It seems I cannot get Cinnamon to load when I use xrdp. Cinnamon is the default window manager on Linux Mint 13 AFAIK, but when I log in via remote desktop connection, I get something that looks a lot like gnome2 as the window manager....

If this is an xrdp issue rather than a cinnamon issue, please let me know. Thanks!

This is probably because there is no 3D acceleration when running remotely - also llvmpipe is probably not available.

Can you please check if this issue persists in latest Cinnamon 2.2 (Mint 17) ? Please close the defect otherwise.

Anyone has a solution or workaround for this? I know other desktop environments, such as MATE, works with XRDP, but I'd rather not switch desktop environment. :(

I would be happy if I could use Cinnamon for everything, but install and use MATE for XRDP only, but haven't managed to get that working either.

@skibum1981, is this still an issue for you with Cinnamon 3.0?

Will there be an improvement for this? I'm using Cinnamon 3.2 with Mint 18.1 x64 with xRDP and it is still not connecting via rdp.

Using Cinnamon 3.2.7 - same problem still. Use fallback mode, but keyboard does not work, for instance letter "s" means same as "windows button" - cannot work with.
