Remote access to a desktop session (xrdp)

This recipe enables remote access to a Raspberry Pi desktop session using xrdp.

Using xrdp, teachers, support engineers, and hobbyists can create a new desktop session on the Raspberry Pi remotely from another computer. The newly created desktop session is separate from the desktop session currently displayed on the monitor attached to the Raspberry Pi. This private session is perfect for installing updates or performing other background tasks that should not interrupt the desktop session currently displayed on the Raspberry Pi's monitor.

After completing this recipe, you will be able to use xrdp to create a new remote desktop session on the Raspberry Pi.
