Re: Installing VS Code on Raspbian Stretch

@hippy - thanks for maintaining the:
6) Edit History
section in your first post!
Awesome to see, right away, that two years later there is still confirmation that things work (or perhaps someday when they don't).
Thx.

Re: Remote desktop (xrdp) on stretch: Some menu items do not work

Thanks but I am trying to get XRDP working with all menu items (ie. raspberry pi configure, shutdown, etc.) on a clean raspbian install.

I'm again failing.

I can log in but can no longer perform elevated permission tasks such as shutdown, raspberry pi configure, gparted, etc.

Re: Remote desktop (xrdp) on stretch: Some menu items do not work

It seems that the 2018-11-13 release of raspbian has again messed up my xrdp workarounds. The previous autostart file is gone at: /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart so this no longer works: echo '@xhost si:localuser:root' | sudo tee -a /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart Once agai...

I have to pare down my use of pi because of this lack of xrdp support, the time consuming process of realizing that, trying to fix XRDP, giving up and adapting to RealVNC.

Re: Remote desktop (xrdp) on stretch: Some menu items do not work

MORE PROBLEMS with XRDP:

If I change the password from the default (pi/raspberry) I can no longer XRDP.

Yet if I change the password back to raspberry I can XRDP.

This is repeatable - back and forth.

Re: Introducing PIXEL desktop: new Raspbian release

Thanks DNPNWO.
I was able to fix (see my updated post earlier).
This seems to be caused, in my case, by doing an upgrade from a remote desktop session (XRDP)
