I have justed tested recent KDE5 from Debian unstable in an X2Go session.

I was happy to see KDE5 from Debian stretch work well together with latest X2Go (i.e. its underlying Xserver nxagent).

Unfortunately, in Debian unstable, KDE5 fails to launch dramatically. I see many crashes of krunner. Once someone is interested in looking at this issue, I can provide more debug info and/or X2Go expertise (I am part of nxagent aka nx-libs upstream).

The test case is simple (no X2Go needed for this, can be tested from an unstable chroot).

Get nxagent 2: or above for this from Debian unstable. I assume that your real server is on DISPLAY :0.

  $ export DISPLAY=:0
  $ nxagent -ac :1

This launches nxagent in nested Xserver mode. The nxagent window is resizable and has Xinerama support on by default.

Then in another terminal, do:

  $ export DISPLAY=:1
  $ STARTUP=startkde dbus-run-session /etc/X11/Xsession

Try this with a KDE5 from stretch, and it should work flawlessly.

Try this with a KDE5 from buster, and you get plenty of problems. The Bluez integration creates high load on the user DBus. Once bluez has been removed, I see less output on stderr, but still various crashes and no KDE5 desktop comming up.

I'd love to see KDE5 support in X2Go for Debian buster.
