    Not answering your question, but I've been using this:

  • XQuartz

    An X11 server and client libraries for macOS

    Project mention: Can different DEs be installed on MacOS? | | 2022-01-11

    Or you could try your luck with running an x11 server in a container or something, then rigging the display by ip through xquartz. Running something native in macos would take a lot of compiling from source or ports. Doubt you'd get gnome or kde running these days but maybe wm2 or dwm? 🤷‍♂️

  • egpu-switcher

    🖥🐧 Setup script for eGPUs in Linux (Xorg)

    Project mention: Can't use eGPU | | 2021-11-27

    I got a Razer X Chroma with an Nvidia RTX 2070. It works fine on Windows, but in Pop OS I don't know how to get applications to run on it. I got the egpu-switcher script, set that up, and rebooted my computer. nvidia-smi detects the egpu, but it doesn't show in nvidia x-server settings, and I just don't know how to use the GPU. Can anybody help me?
