RDP in Ubuntu 13.04/13.10 (How to install xrdp and connect from Windows/OSX)

On the Ubuntu machine, install xrdp (via a terminal):
  • sudo apt-get install xrdp
Install XFCE:
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.10
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install xfce4
Configure your session to use XFCE:
  • echo xfce4-session >~/.xsession  
Restart xrdp:
  • sudo service xrdp restart
There. Quick and relatively easy fix.
