At the moment I am doing most of my pi experiments using an rdp session as it save setting up another keyboard/mouse/monitor...
I can rdp to the pi. can samba back to my pc drives so all the basics are working.
I have found something, which to me, is a bit strange.
If I login with a keybaord connected to the pi then I am able to use apt-get to install packages. Form the rdp session this fails with a string of messages saying ldconfig not found.
when I look further I see that all of the sbin paths are missing from $PATH.
I suspect that this is a simple problem to solve.... but blowed if I know how.
