xfreerdp command line and settings file combination

Wed Feb 22, 2017 3:11 pm

Hi,

I can't find the related topic anymore, but somebody had the same issue as I had.
When you use xfreerdp, and point to an rdp file *and* supply additional command line parameters, it doesn't work as it should.
I found that the parameter after the filename is skipped.
As workaround I now supply a . as 2nd parameter:

Code: Select all

xfreerdp /home/pi/fullscreen.rdp . +clipboard /drive:Files,/media/pi/SHAREDFILES -wallpaper /v:somehost
And the xfreerdp version: This is FreeRDP version 1.1.0-beta1 (git n/a)

Forget using XRDP, freerdp or any RDP. Use RealVNC the results are going to be better in all cases.
Any language using left-hand whitespace for syntax is ridiculous

Fake doctors - are all on my foes list.

Any requirement to use a crystal ball or mind reading will result in me ignoring your question.

Not everything is a nail.
