The project Deepin plans for future versions develop an application that can natively interact with a smartphone.

To use it we carried in our repository deepines a package that displays the dependencies needed for successful installation and operation. Once installed and updated repository cited above. proceeds to install from Synaptic or the terminal with the command.

sudo apt install indicator-kdeconnect 

Remember that you must download the client from Android Play Store for both devices then match.

Enjoy it!

Thanks, I'll try again using deepines and the steps that you show here, the last time I did not work well, possibly by a faulty installation.


In Synaptic package manager he tells me that the package is broken and terminal which has broken dependencies.


Besides wanted to ask if it worked with KDE integration Bowser?


Thank you very much'm new registered but have long looked at me the website of this great set.

Hello, the application does not allow me to send files or access the folders on my mobile phone, other functions are ok. I am currently using Deepin 15.11. Nor do I get no error message, simply nothing happens.



Hi, welcome to the forum, the article has more than two years of writing, it is possible that the package indicator-kdeconnect it is no longer compatible with the current, for text and MMS version Deepin from your PC I recommend SendLeap and to send and receive files between your phone and PC I recommend SendAnywhere or AirDroidboth they have Linux clients for the last time I tried worked well in Deepin.

Hello, I do the same thing happens to you, but to transfer files between your phone and computer and vice versa, plus many more administrative functions, rather aritmore - - on AirDroid, it is lighter, faster, stable and does not insist on the need to create an account like AirDroid.

I prefer to use a web client on the computer because it always works for me and not to get down to install anything on the computer.
