I'm a systems administrator, and I have an extra PC under my desk that I'd like to be able to run Kubuntu on. I've tried setting up a KVM in the past but I always run into issue with my USB mouse, as I only have a PS2 kvm, and while my keyboard works my mouse usually doesn't. I'd like to setup a RDP type session from my Windows Laptop so I can just remote into my linux box via KDE like I would another windows server. I know I can always SSH to the machine, but I'm looking to be able to use KDE not just a shell. Is there any free software that would allow me to do this?
