I just checked the color depth of the X2Go session on the Pi by running

So it seems we're running in 16-bit color mode on this particular Pi.

On the Pi itself, the kernel parameters were:
dma.dmachans=0x7f35 bcm2708_fb.fbwidth=1824 bcm2708_fb.fbheight=984
bcm2708.boardrev=0xe bcm2708.serial=0xe6ae45f7
smsc95xx.macaddr=B8:27:EB:AE:45:F7 bcm2708_fb.fbswap=1
sdhci-bcm2708.emmc_clock_freq=250000000 vc_mem.mem_base=0x1ec00000
vc_mem.mem_size=0x20000000  dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=ttyAMA0,115200
kgdboc=ttyAMA0,115200 console=tty1 elevator=deadline root=/dev/mmcblk0p2
rootfstype=ext4 rootwait

So while I see parameters for framebuffer height and width, I can't see
anything specifying the color depth.

Is there any place where I can force it to use 24/32-Bit color?
