Install xrdp on Ubuntu 18.04 desktop

Install xrdp
$ sudo apt-get -y install xrdp

Next, one may adjust the configuration file:
$ sudo nano /etc/xrdp/xrdp.ini

Set encryption level to high, and save xrdp.ini:

Allow just RDP through the local firewall:
$ sudo ufw allow 3389/tcp

Create a polkit configuration file:
$ sudo nano /etc/polkit-1/localauthority.conf.d/02-allow-colord.conf 

and put below settings into the file:

polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {
if (( == “org.freedesktop.color-manager.create-device” || == “org.freedesktop.color-manager.create-profile” || == “org.freedesktop.color-manager.delete-device” || == “org.freedesktop.color-manager.delete-profile” || == “org.freedesktop.color-manager.modify-device” || == “org.freedesktop.color-manager.modify-profile”) && subject.isInGroup(“{group}”))
return polkit.Result.YES;

Restart xrdp
$ sudo systemctl restart xrdp

Logout all user from your desktop

Connect using remote desktop client. For linux, you can use remmina.

P/S: If you are still unable to login using remote desktop client, check whether you have xorgxrdp package installed. If not, install it and restart xrdp. Then try to connect again

$ sudo apt install xorgxrdp -y
$ sudo systemctl restart xrdp
