if you open a terminal window and type "rdesktop", what do you get?

I believe you need to reboot if you used 'on boot' to have it loaded.
AMD, ARM, & Intel.

If typing rdesktop results in the help menu etc then the application is opening, you simply need to supply the parameters for rdesktop to use is all

a basic rdesktop command might be for example
rdesktop 134.5.64.21

Or a little more specific
rdesktop -u Administrator -g 1600x1050 -a 16 134.5.64.21:4727

Send the extension maintainer a pm requesting an update.

This information is not correct.
rdesktop Version 1.7.1 works fine with both Server 2008R2 and Server 2012  in both tc-5.x and tc-6 x86.  however there have been a few minor fixes related to server 2012 in recent releases


What is the command you're using?

my apologies, i did manage to update it to the latest version 1.8.3 and it fixed some mouse issues etc...now if I could create a rdesktop shortcut so end users don't have to enter the command i'd be in business

I'm guessing you're using tc-5.x because the iconv change in tc-6 causes other issues and might warrant a recompile for tc-6

Also iDesk might be what you're looking for..

Alternatively (as i have done) is make an extension which provides a list of servers you may select to connect to;  complete with resolution and user arguments all from the desktop right click menu.   all that I leave out is the password.  could you be more specific? then we might have more suggestions

I install firefox "OnBoot" but cannot open it. After reboot cannot open too. However, then I install opera9, this application started successfully. I have 300MB RAM in my system. How many RAM is required for start firefox?
