Unless you have 1 Gigabit or higher ssh -Y will be sluggish. Just use x11/x2goclient https://openports.pl/path/x11/x2goclient if you can install x2goserver on your work desktop. It is an insecure Perl wrapper around NX NoMachine protocol which is just cleverly compressed ssh -Y. NoMachine used to be free for up to 2 clients but no longer. Cheers, Predrag P.S. You should never use ssh -X (insecure X tunneling on non-local networks).
