at least for KDE Plasma this is not true - we do not demand 3D graphics 
acceleration in the 4.x series. I'm happy to help you setting this up 
correctly (the defaults are rather unsuited for Terminal servers) or to point 
you to people who can help you there. Feel free to contact me off-list.

Nevertheless I need to point out that X11 is unfortunately although claimed 
otherwise completely unsuited for terminal setups. It mostly works because 
bandwith is enough, but in general it just sucks. There is some good material 
on that topic by X developers :-)

Cheers
