WUBI installed Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS with xRDP and X11RDP[]

  1. Install Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS desktop 32bit with WUBI.
  2. Dual-Boot the WUBI installed Ubuntu and configure it
    as your needs. You should disable all visual effects
    and choose a one color background.
  3. Download the X11RDP-o-Matic 2.5 (many thanks
    Kevin Cave for that tool) and extract the files.
  4. Open a terminal, change to the directory with the
    extracted files and run the command:
    sudo ./ --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.
  5. Next run the command:
    sudo ./
     to configure the RDP sessions.
  6. Edit as root user the /etc/xrdp/xrdp.ini file, and
    change the standard RDP port from 3389 into 3390.
  7. 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
  8. Edit as root user the /etc/rc.local file and add
    a line with:
    stop rsyslog
    before the line with exit 0, because rsyslog gives
    high cpu load under coLinux.
  9. Install coLinux with the slirp connection, but without
    downloading a coLinux image and build a config file for
    coLinux as:
    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.
  10. Just you can install the coLinux driver and start coLinux
    with the coLinux config file.
  11. Run the Microsoft Remote-Dektop-Connection (mstsc.exe)
    and use as the computer name/address the
    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!
