Due to a severe hard drive crash on the main machine that I use to remote into while away from my home, I opted to move from XFCE to KDE Plasma. While I like the desktop interface/experience a lot more on KDE, there is one glaring issue … I can’t remote into it.
It should be noted that I use DWService.net as my RDP solution while out and about, and honestly it works flawlessly on other distros. I am also running on a mini computer in a headless configuration.
When I connect remotely, I am presented with the login screen with no issues, I can type in my password and submit that like any other time, however when it is supposed to present the desktop, it’s just a black screen.
I’ve worked around the issue temporarily by attaching a monitor to the HDMI-1 slot, but that defeats the purpose on how I want to use it. There was a similar issue with the XFCE environment, and the solution was adding a virtual HDMI-0 ‘display’, designate the resolution size, and carry on.
I’ve done a lot of internet searching so far, and nothing that I’ve read and tried has helped.
Is there a similar solution for KDE that I can implement and disconnect the monitor again?
