Please tell me if and how it‘s possible to remotely control an Honor 7S Android smartphone (it‘s probably a Huawei trademark) with Android version 8.1.0 from 32 bit Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (with xubuntu-desktop/Xfce 4.12) without rooting my phone.
I tried TeamViewer. Here's the details:
On the phone I installed TeamViewer Host version 15.6.51 from the Play Store, the app said remote control is supported on my device and I‘ve been asked to install the Add-On: Huawei (b). I installed it (version 12.1.7267). On the Ubuntu PC I installed TeamViewer version 15.6.7 (for Ubuntu 32-bit from a .deb file). I ran TeamViewer on the Ubuntu PC and signed up to a TeamViewer account. I ran TeamViewer Host on the phone. It asked me to log in to my account. When I pressed the log-in button a message said I have to add my phone as a trusted device and I'd be sent an email with a link. I clicked that link and got a message that my device was added as a trusted device. When I pressed the log-in button again, I was logged in. The app displays a green point and Ready to connect (secure connection). It says to connect to this device I should open https://login.teamviewer.com on my computer, log in with my TeamViewer account and choose this device and cklick "Connect" at "Computer & Contacts". When I open that website and log in I see my device. When I click Connect the following message is displayed:
Connect to number
Please download TeamViewer full version and install it for experiencing the best possible performance!
Chrome App button (inactive)
Checkbox Save this selection
Connect (at first inactive)
When I select TeamViewer and click Connect (now active) the message Connect to number is displayed and nothing happens!
When I try to establish the connection directly from TeamViewer instead of the browser, click Computer & Contacts and log in, my device is displayed at My computers and the status bar says Ready to connect (secure connection). When I doubleclick my device Connect to partner, Connect, Authentication, Authentication accepted and Ready to connect (secure connection) again is displayed. On the phone it says Ready to connect (secure connection), Incoming connection, Wait for authentication, Connected to My Name and Ready to connect (secure connection) again. After some time my phone disappears from My computers and shows up in Offline.
I don't know how to connect and TeamViewer doesn‘t mirror the Android screen!
