SERVER SETTINGS

 X2go > Options > settings > X.Org Server settings > 
   (o) use custom X-server 
     once you check this, exe is populated for you, but it is WRONG and you won't be able to fix later?
     use this!
       exe: C:/Program Files (x86)/x2goclient/VcXsrv/vcxsrv.exe
     [x] start x-server on x2go client start
     command line options: -rootless -clipboard -keyhook -screen 0 1920x1080@2

CLIENT (session) settings

 path: /      
 host: 10.122.81.233
 login: m
 ssh port:22 (was set by default)
 (defaults)
 session type: custom desktop  Command: i3  < THIS WORKS whoohoo!

 (o) Use whole display  Display 2   < THIS GETS MONITOR 2 GOING PERFECTLY, we can mess with multimonitor more later
