[all variants] rdesktop on basic Xserver

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi folks, Im looking to run up a basic Xserver for example just running "xinit" to get an xterm and then using rdesktop to connect to a remote machine. I have no need for a desktop on the local machine. I have 3 questions: 1. What is the best method generally to just get a Xserver up from the inital login console is xinit suitable or is there a better way. 2. How does one disable the automatic startup of the desktop (say gnome or unity) upon login? 3. When I open a rdesktop session from the xterm, it seems to be full screen, although this is ok, how do i terminate the session (Hardware)
