Can't seem to get remote desktop to work

Post by moiner3000 »

Hi, I'm currently running a Raspberry Pi 3B+ with the latest DietPi version and I can't get remote desktop to work.
I've installed XRDP but everytime I try to log in via Windows Remote Desktop I get this screen here:

It's stuck like this forever, I've let it run for about half an hour but nothing changed, no error messages appeared.
I have also installed MATE but the screen is the same whether I run it or not, don't actually know if I need to run it for it to work.
Not really sure what could be the problem here as I'm new to this kinda stuff.
Hope someone could help me, thanks in advance!

on login screen, did you select Xorg or Xvnc? Which user you are using to login?

did you set anything to autostart?

I tried it on my RPi3B+ and it's working without issues :?

I tried the autostart options 7 and 2, both produce the same result.
Should I try something else there?

usually autostart is not needed at all. It can stay deactivated - option 0

maybe there is an issue with tigerVNC. Do you have any VNC Viewer installed? That could be used to test the VNC Server without using XRDP.

Ok so I installed one, and it throws out an error saying the host refused the connection.
What should I do now? Sorry I'm very new to this stuff

what IP address you used to connect for the VNC Viewer? Sould be something like 192.168.0.x:1
