This was a use case I needed the Pyra for.

Sadly I installed XRDP and performance is so bad that is unusable for me. The desktop loads but it just works too slow to be usable.

Is there something I can configure manually to fix it?

Also wonder if it may benefit compiling from source vs just the normal repo version?

What is the server, the client ?
Why not freerdp or a vnc ? Or a xhost in case of *NIX ?

It seems you are not alone in this: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=xrdp+slow&t=newext&atb=v246-1&ia=web


Was this your procedure?


Code:
sudo apt update

sudo apt install xrdp xubuntu-desktop

Once the above packages are installed:

- Edit /etc/xrdp/xrdp.ini and under the section [Xorg] add the following:

autorun=session_name


Under the user you want to login as, run:

sudo echo xfce4-session > /home/$USER/.xsession

(assuming Pyra has xfce4)


Suggestions from others: Try nomachine (it's free).

maybe it's using opengl? did you tried launching it with gl4es?
How do I do this? It certainly seems to be the graphics that lack all kind of acceleration.

The client is a windows machine where I cannot add software. XRDP seems to best option with this restriction.

It doesn't get any better. It seems to be a cpu constrain because although the usage is low it reaches 100% for almost any action I do. Scrolling in the file browser for instance is a pain.

Anyhow let's see if this gets better.
