How to launch remote desktop on Plasma 6.1

According to KDE, we should be able to launch remote desktop server under system setting, but when I typed “rdp” into the search, nothing came up. Can anyone show me how to configure this properly?

Is krdc and krdp installed yet?

[thomas@roamer ~]$ pacman -Q krdc krdp
krdc 24.05.1-1
krdp 6.1.0-1


Got it. Can you show me how to add VNC onto the drop down menu?

I don’t use vnc nor rdp.
Maybe vnc is just not supported?

Do you have libvncserver and libssh installed? Those look like the relevant optional dependencies.

You probably need also krfb?

Did you manage to connect remotely? I keep getting an error.

I didn’t install krfb but the remote desktop works fine without it. Other PCs are able to access the host.

I think krfb is only needed if you use VNC protocol, but I use RDP and it works fine.


I try to use rdp ( or VNC ) to connect from a Windows 10PC to EndeavourOs ( Arhc based distro ).
I have both krdp and krdc, I enabled Remote Desktop from settings and created a user.
On RDP I get error 0x2104 and on VNC I get "target machine actively refused it.
Does anybody know what can be the cause of this?

I also tried NoMachine, X2go, xrdp, but to no success. anydesk works on X11 only, and RustDesk has buggy audio on both X11 and wayland, both pulseaudio and pipewire
