The project Deepin plans for future versions the development of an application that allows interacting natively with a smartphone.

At the moment we can resort to the well-known KDE Connect which will allow us to interact with Android from our desktop through the WiFi connection and do many interesting things with it.

Connect KDE features

  • Share on clipboard: Useful for transferring long and complicated texts.
  • File sharing: access and share files from / to your Android devices.
  • Shared Notifications: KDE Connect sends all notifications from your smartphone to your computer.
  • Send URLs to your Linux desktop from your smartphone.
  • Use your phone as an input device (such as a mouse, trackpad, or keyboard) and / or a presenter.
  • Multimedia remote control: use your phone as a remote control to control multimedia players.
  • View your phone's battery level from your desktop.
  • Send and receive pings to / from devices.
  • Send sms from the desktop.
  • Find your lost phone by making it ring an alarm sound.
  • Execute console commands remotely.
  • RSA encryption: your information will be safe.

To use it we have ported in our repository deepines a package that displays the necessary dependencies for its successful installation and correct operation. Once the aforementioned repository is installed and updated. Proceed to install from synaptic or the terminal with the command.

sudo apt install indicator-kdeconnect 

Remember that you must download the Android client from the Play Store and then pair both devices.

Enjoy it!

Thanks, I will try again using deepines and the steps you show here, the last time it did not work well for me, possibly due to a wrong installation.

In the synaptic package manager it tells me that the package is broken and by terminal that it has unfulfilled dependencies.


Besides, I wanted to ask if it works with the KDE Bowser integration?


Thank you very much I am a new registered but I have been looking at the website of this fantastic distribution for a long time.

Hello, the application does not allow me to send files or access the folders of my mobile phone, the rest of the functionalities are ok. I am currently using deepin 15.11. Nor do I get any error messages, just nothing happens.

Hello, Welcome to the forum, the article is more than two years old, it is possible that the package indicator-kdeconnect It is no longer compatible with the current version of Deepin, For texts and MMS from your PC I recommend you SendLeap and to send and receive files between your phone and your PC I recommend SendAnywhere or AirDroidboth have clients for Linux that the last time I tried them worked well in Deepin.

Hello, the same thing happens to me as you, but to transfer files between the phone and the computer and vice versa, in addition to many more administrative functions, I prefer aritmore - - on airdroid, it is lighter, faster, more stable and does not insist on the need to create an account like on airdroid.

I prefer to use a web client on the computer because it always works for me and you don't have to install anything on the computer.
