no sleep, so trying to figure out how to remote into a linux desktop from windows:

putty - shell is fine, but cant' use for many things I want
xrdp - works great, but no sound (can't get pulseaudio-module-xrdp working, doesn't seem to support mint 21)
x2go - works with sound, but slow and doesn't run cinnamon correctly

I guess the best solution is again with vmware. I don't know why I keep resisting it.

Also, I need sleep. Jury duty in 3 hours :(

oh and in case you're wondering why I'm down this rabbit hole: I upgraded my gpu, and some of the AAA game are locked behind all kind of launchers that are hairy to run under Linux.

(example, Red Dead Redemption 2 works fine in Steam, but I got it from Epic... bad choice was made there)

@g_love not bad, very polished. Still needs pulseaudio though (no sound after initial setup)

@surak yep. Was suggested. I tried and has same audio issues as xrdp - that is, no audio, needs pulseaudio (seems like) which I tried to make work.
