We tried Zoom and AnyDesk, but they do not work because of video driver issues (my friend has Nvidia GPU).

Google Meet works! But we want remote control. Chrome Remote Desktop wants to install deb, but we use Gentoo Linux.

We tried x2go but it needs ip address, and my friend cannot edit his router settings in order to pass the internal ip:port to outside, so because of this we also cannot use ssh -X.

Also Zoho Assist has this funcionality.

It has two flavors: Remote Support and Unattended Remote Access (but the client needs an installation for it).

And lot of features:

  • File transfer
  • Instant Chat
  • Schedule Sessions
  • Multi-Monitor Navigation
  • Voice and Video Chat
  • Reboot and Reconnect


  • Bulk Deployment
  • Diagnostic tools
  • Remote Power Options
  • Wake on LAN
  • Session Recording
  • Session Confirmation

You can try do it with help of Getscreen.me software. This remote desktop works from browser and don't need to instal additional program. Works on Linux as well.

    When you offer a program you have relation with, you MUST disclose such affiliation.

  • Besides, the website seems to require a program to be installed on the server side, with only the client being browser-only.
