I already reported (back in January 2017) that KDE5/Plasma apps
"mostly" work with the stable releases of X2Go when run as single
applications.  By "mostly" I mean that repainting tends to be very
slow.  Even applications that draw only text (such as Konsole and
KWrite) are far too slow to use comfortably.  Even running them over a
raw SSH connection is faster!  By contrast, GTK+ applications are nice
and fast.

Another problem with running KDE applications remotely is that many
toolbar icons don't get drawn (being replaced with text labels), though
this problem isn't unique to X2Go; it also occurs with vanilla SSH.

The situation is the same today.
