WUBI installed Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS with xRDP and X11RDPEdit
- Install Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS desktop 32bit with WUBI.
- Dual-Boot the WUBI installed Ubuntu and configure it
as your needs. You should disable all visual effects
and choose a one color background.
- Download the X11RDP-o-Matic 2.5 (many thanks
Kevin Cave for that tool) and extract the files.
- Open a terminal, change to the directory with the
extracted files and run the command:
sudo ./X11rdp-o-matic.sh --justdoit
This will download, utilize all cpu cores for compilation,
compile, install, and configure X11rdp and xrdp automatically
from start to finish. Wait some time.
- Next run the command:
to configure the RDP sessions.
- Edit as root user the /etc/xrdp/xrdp.ini file, and
change the standard RDP port from 3389 into 3390.
- Edit as root user the /etc/fstab file and add the
lines for the coLinux drives:
# Mount points under coLinux
/dev/cobd0 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/cobd1 none swap sw 0 0
- Edit as root user the /etc/rc.local file and add
a line with:
before the line with exit 0, because rsyslog gives
high cpu load under coLinux.
- Install coLinux with the slirp connection, but without
downloading a coLinux image and build a config file for
root=/dev/cobd0 noplymouth text
The drive and path (v:\ubuntu\disks) points to the WUBI
installed disk images. The boot paramter noplymouth and
text are important to start Ubuntu with coLinux.
- Just you can install the coLinux driver and start coLinux
with the coLinux config file.
- Run the Microsoft Remote-Dektop-Connection (mstsc.exe)
and use as the computer name/address the 127.0.0.1:3390
IP-address with the RDP port, the Ubuntu user name as
user/login name and the Ubuntu user password for the
Because the slirp connection is not performant,
you should change the coLinux configuration to use a local
network connection, e.g. ndis-bridge or tap.
That's all to get a with WUBI installed dual-bootable Ubuntu
installation running with coLinux. You can use both to run
Ubuntu, dual-booting or coLinux with the same disk images!
