Is there an app in ubuntu that provides the same integration with android phones as kdeconnect?

Now that KDE is a framework it mightn't have the same impact of installing libs into my Ubuntu install as it but if there was something designed that would be better.

If you want filesharing with your android phone then samba would be suited best for that. – Avinash Raj Apr 7 '14 at 2:55
You could investigate Linconnect but I had an unmet dependency problem with it and hoped for something similar without adding an entire KDE environment. – Sean Feb 20 at 17:51
  1. To share files between your PC and Android, I use Airdroid, no PC client needed.
  2. To Control your laptop from your PC, I use Splashtop, The Ubuntu client is available in the software center, I'd download it personally from My friend likes to use teamviewer instead, the Ubuntu client is available on

Note that I have never shared web pages, although it might be possible, I prefer using pocket, it has an extension for dolphin browser if you use it, maybe other browsers as well, and an extension for every PC browser.

I use Airdroid and Pocket All the time, splashtop is a nice suggestion. Kdeconnect had just a deeper level of integration when hooked up your messages and sms show on the laptop, it pauses music on the laptop when this happens. It's just done well and I had hoped to avoid kdelibs – sayth Apr 10 '14 at 8:41
@sayth Well I tried installing kdeconnect on my xubuntu, didn't work, I guess it only works on a kde desktop – Lynob Apr 11 '14 at 18:02
