To install manually X11RDP (and XRDP) we will follow this simple steps. This will download the latest X11rdp and XRDP versions, install them and configure them.

Note: This has been tested on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, but there should be no problem with other installations.


  • The build system has full access to internet
  • The build system is debian based distro
  • The build system’s access to the Debian-based package system (via apt/dpkg/apt-get)
  • The build system’s repository settings are configured to access the repositories via the internet. (Or all the necessary packages available via the CD/DVD’s)

Tested distributions

  • Ubuntu 12.10
  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Xubuntu)
  • Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS
  • Debian GNU/Linux testing (wheezy)
  • Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.5 (squeeze)
  • Debian GNU/Linux 7.0 (wheezy)
  • Linux Mint 12 Lisa
  • Linux Mint 13 Maya
  • Ubuntu 13.04 (Lubuntu)


  1. Download and install X11RDP-o-Matic. You will need svn or git to do this.
  2. In the directory you cloned X11RDP-o-Matic execute the script with the parameter "--justdoit"

The process is long. It will take more than 15 minutes to complete, so be patient, it will be a one time process and it's worth the waiting. Also, the script fully automatizes the download, compilation and installation of X11RDp and XRDP.

In this example, we used svn to checkout X11RDP-o-Matic:

svn co X11RDP-o-Matic
cd X11RDP-o-Matic
sudo ./ --justdoit

And voila!

To check X11RDP-o-Matic options and usage, see this url:

From here, proceed to setup the window manager as described in XRDP and UDS at Select your preferred window manager.

Pre created Packages

Althougth is recommended that you follow the instruction for creating your own packages, we provided here some packages that we have created and seems to work fine (we don't have anyway tested them intensibily):

Issues found

Ubuntu 12.04

Currently we haven't been capable of use spanish keyboard with latests X11RDP, so we recommend to avoid this. (havent tested setxkbmap -layout 'es,es' -model pc105 anyway, if any suggestion, please notify us)

This version is not longer supported, so try to avoid it

Ubuntu 13.04

Testing right now

Ubuntu 13.10

This is not a LTS, so we also avoid it

No issues found, following the "script" procedure all seems fine right now.

Ubuntu 14.10

Again, not an LTS, avoid this if possible.
