Sorry. Current product doesn't support multiple users at the same time. We may support it in the future.

I really think this would be a logical step to take, Jsun. Any timeframe on when this feature might see the light of day btw?

This feature will be added in the coming ubuntu 18.04 product, scheduled to come out end of this month. Currently there is no plan to add it to current products retroactively.

I am using the ubuntu 18 version that advertises multiple logins and I cannot get it to work.

I added a second linux user (via 'adduser') and then tried to RDP. It did connect and gate me a blank desktop with the message:
"login failed for display 0"

Don't I somehow need to configure X and or VNC for multiple desktops?

Can you please post explicit and complete instructions for how to add additional users and desktops for multiple simultaneous logins?

Thanks,
-tom

When using RDP to login, please make sure the user is not logged in from other sessions.
