[HDGEM] How to Customize Desktop Environment for xRDP Session

If you do not want to use the default desktop environment, you can customize it by creating a .Xclients file (X is capital!!!) in your home directory to launch the desktop environment you want and making it executable. In order to do this, open a terminal and run one of the following commands
Gnome 3:
echo "gnome-session" > ~/.Xclients  chmod +x ~/.Xclients  sudo systemctl restart xrdp.service  
Gnome Fallback:
echo "gnome-fallback" > ~/.Xclients  chmod +x ~/.Xclients  sudo systemctl restart xrdp.service  
KDE:
echo "startkde" > ~/.Xclients  chmod +x ~/.Xclients  sudo systemctl restart xrdp.service  
MATE:
echo "mate-session" > ~/.Xclients  chmod +x ~/.Xclients  sudo systemctl restart xrdp.service  
Cinnamon:
echo "cinnamon" > ~/.Xclients  chmod +x ~/.Xclients  sudo systemctl restart xrdp.service  
Xfce4:
echo "startxfce4" > ~/.Xclients  chmod +x ~/.Xclients  sudo systemctl restart xrdp.service
