KDE Connect



  • I'd love to see a client for ubuntu phone.

    On my laptop i can see information(battery, sms, incoming calls or messages) from my android device.

    Also file transfer over wifi is simple.

    Can you please tell more about this KDE app? Thanks



  • Nop, there are a lot of videos on youtube.

    You need to install the program on your device(phone&pc).
    On the desktop pc you get a icon in the status bar. Here you can open the folder structer from the phone or you can see battery status.
    Is there a incoming call you see a pop up on the desktop. If you don't find your device, you can start a "ping"
    After that your mobile phone is making beep beep beep



  • @guru KDEconnect is an extremely cool app to bridge all your devices. Here is the github repo and KDE community wiki entry. In just a few words:

    1. Link your PCs, Smartphones, Laptops via Wifi or Bluetooth
    2. Share content (send files, share clipboard) encrypted and with nautilus (filemanager) support
    3. Some nifty features for the smartphone:
      • Find my phone (click on desktop and phone will ring)
      • See notifcations, take calls, answer on messager on desktop
      • Send CLI commands/touchscreen/keyboard events to desktop
      • See phone status (battery) on desktop

    Sorry for redundancy, Stefan already mentioned a few of these, i'm just a big fan of this app and would love to see it on UT



  • @demokrit: Your description is much better, thanks for this...



  • Yeah! KDE Connect i very useful - Perfect when we can't connect our phone to an external monitor.



  • Someone could try to apt install it. It can be paired from the command line



  • Does KDE Connect (pc version) support ARM then...??



  • @SweDennis As I understand the Wiki, there is some KDE plasma application to be installed or compiled from sources (as I do in FreeBSD) and some app for Android on arm and some protocol between the two.



  • apt install DOES offer it so I guess it has at least been COMPILED for arm. It wants to pull in some 250 mb of dependencies though :-P I didn't try that. Would have to make some space for it first.



  • good idea to check apt. it's not normal in my android life to install with apt ;-)

    i will try to install this at the weekend and try to pair the device with my desktop

    Hi. Have you been able to connect your phone with kdeconnect?

    I would like to try, but apt-get wants to install alot of kde packages.
    No problem if it works.



  • @vehi_mv I don't try to install because of the same reason you write :) sorry i don't know if it works or not.
