    I needed to whitelist some ports on the firewall in Tumbleweed, maybe you have the same issue?

    I often use it with Androids access point, or usb tethering. Both work pretty well, and much better than MTP, in my experience. But I agree that bluetooth would be nice to have as well.

    Wouldn't sharing the internet connection over Bluetooth work as well, though? I'm not sure how it works.

    And +1 for the cover Art

    Shame it's tied heavily to KDE. A DE agnostic backend daemon with multiple frontends (i.e. KDE, GNOME, XFCE, etc) would have been much better for Linux.

    I'm just sad that the bluetooth communication system is still beta in KDEConnect, and requires a specifically built APK to be able to be used.

    I can't even install the test version on my phone because it doesn't work on Android 8.1.

    The only thing that really makes me feel strange, is that "gsconnect" -> https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1319/gsconnect/ for gnome works so much better and feels better integrated into gnome shell, compared to kde connect to kde plasma, while both are using the kde connect proto.

    However, AWESOME WORK!
