    Best RDP (or the alike) for MacOS (Catalina+) -> Ubuntu Desktop?

    Okay, I'm now resorting to the forums. I'm trying to find a good, functioning, RDP setup to connect to my Ubuntu box. I have it installed and running on a mini-PC for months. It does NOT have a monitor connected (after I installed Ubuntu Desktop, I removed the monitor).

    I've been looking at options, none of them seem to work or be efficient:

    * x2go doesn't work on Catalina.
    * vino is not compatible with Catalina's VNC client.
    * TigerVNC is slow redraw rate - I'm literally on a LAN connection with the mini-box.

    What are the other options? I'm surprised these things seem to be so hard to get working.

    Thanks,

    Normal remote-X11? Do Macs support that?

    x2go is X11. It's not working very well. I couldn't get anything to show. I got a flashed X11 window like something was happening, then disappeared. Nothing.

    No, x2go uses the NX protocol. x2go has issues with the default Ubuntu Gnome3 GUI, so most people use a different DE, like XFCE, LXDE, or Mate when using x2go.

    X11 uses X11. I know Unix-savvy OSX people will setup an X11 server on their Macs so they can run X11 clients from remote systems.

    Install HomeBrew on the Mac. Then install an X server on both Mac and Ubuntu. After that, you can use SSH with X forwarding between them.
