  1. This should resolve the crappy VirtualBox-hosted VMs that had GUI enabled, where you could not easily click on GUI controls due to piled up bugs. I now could remotely login without worrying about the buggy GUI presented by either GNOME or KDE with CentOS. A BIG Thanks for you to provide this how-to!

  2. I ran into an issue where my connection would immediately close out after connecting up. For those who might run into this I was able to fix it by editing the xrdp.ini file :
    cd /etc/xrdp
    vim xrdp.ini
