    There's a way to get sudo on Windows, I think I installed it with scoop.

    PopOS was able to handle it cleanly for awhile, but something broke with newer versions. My only savior was: https://github.com/Askannz/optimus-manager

  • usbfluxd

    Redirects the standard usbmuxd socket to allow connections to local and remote usbmuxd instances so remote devices appear connected locally.

    I used this: https://github.com/kholia/OSX-KVM
