Got the /usr/lib/Xorg patched now too.

Since I'm using Manjaro I can only tell about this ... /usr/bin/Xorg is a simple script, which decides to start /usr/lib/Xorg or /usr/lib/Xorg.wrap. So using /usr/lib/Xorg is the recommended way. Starting in fact /usr/lib/Xorg.wrap did not work, even via /usr/bin/Xorg.

@bidulock @for0ryl

I can confirm that I can only establish a connection when I set Param=/usr/lib/Xorg in sesman.ini. Neither Xorg nor /usr/bin/Xorg work.

The fix is to read the wiki of course, where it advises to:

Add allowed_users=anybody to /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config to allow anybody to start X

This however is not required if Param is set as per sesman.ini, so I guess there's a choice here. However I'm not sure there's any harm in setting Param to a setting more specific to Arch so I would support such a change.

Also do you run a login manager? That might also be significant (I don't).

That's great, thank you!

Thanks for the Xorg pointer. I checked and indeed show the same as you. I'll do some more testing to see if I can recreate the issue.

@sshaikh got your pre_start/post_start included in 0.9.16 update.

[brian@piggy xrdp]$ which Xorg /usr/bin/Xorg [brian@piggy xrdp]$ pacman -Qo /usr/bin/Xorg /usr/bin/Xorg is owned by xorg-server 1.20.11-1 [brian@piggy xrdp]$

~~That's my point - I don't have the problem anymore. I suspect something has changed in my system as I have an Xorg in my /sbin that wraps the only in /use/lib, so I believe there's no reason the default shouldn't work.~~

~~That said I did have to do it previously, so maybe unfortunately it's a specific Manjaro issue now.~~

I lied - after a reboot I lost the /sbin/Xorg wrapper somehow. Changing semsan manually brought xrdp back.

@sshaikh Same problem with Xorg path as I have reported on 2020-06-02. But no response ....

sshaikh commented on 2021-04-28 16:16

Separately I also had to previously apply the following change to sesman.ini while using xorg-git, although this isn't needed here which is great.

For my curiosity has another workaround been introduced?

; Specify the path of non-suid Xorg executable. It might differ depending
; on your distribution and version. Find out the appropreate path for your
; environment. The typical path is known as follows:
; Fedora 26 or later    :  param=/usr/libexec/Xorg
; Debian 9 or later     :  param=/usr/lib/xorg/Xorg
; Ubuntu 16.04 or later :  param=/usr/lib/xorg/Xorg
; Arch Linux            :  param=/usr/lib/Xorg
; CentOS 7              :  param=/usr/bin/Xorg or param=Xorg
; CentOS 8              :  param=/usr/libexec/Xorg

I always have to manually add the following to, as this sets up the correct bash variables/startup for my session, similar to all of the other DE starts.

Is there any reason why this isn't part of the Arch package, or why Arch users wouldn't want it?

   # arch user
   if [ -r ~/.xinitrc ]; then
+    pre_start
     . ~/.xinitrc
+    post_start
     exit 0
   # arch
