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
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.
