    I installed xrdp on ubuntu 12.04 and connect from WinXP. Enlightenment works fine but I prefer cinnamon. If I try to start cinnamon (using /usr/bin/gnome-session –session=cinnamon in startwm.sh), I get a normal gnome session. Can’t seem to get cinnamon. This page (http://forum.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=208&t=118495) indicates its a limitation of xrdp. Any hope of getting this to work?
