It works fine. But it need some tweeks to be able to display phone content on newer phones (I have Sony Xperia 10V). I have Gwenview installed and somehow it will open Gwenview to browse the folder? To open the content for newer phones you need to add "/storage/emulated/0" to the folder to view the phone content (otherwize it just show empty folder). For excample "/run/user/1000/"Long-Random-String"/storage/emulated/0" (you have to replace "Long-Random-String" to your phone folder). Then you can browse your phone. On my old Sony Xperia XZs it show content without problem.

Works well on Linux Mint 20.3 and LM 21. Make sure you have configured the Firewall correctly, otherwise it won't work. You can do that with the built-in rules. https://youtube.com/shorts/VyWkYUj-_ds?feature=share

It works on Linux Mint 21 Cinnamon. Make sure you add the firewall rules sudo ufw allow 1714:1764/udp && sudo ufw allow 1714:1764/tcp sudo ufw reload

How do you get this to work on LM 20.3 Cinnamon? I've tried everything. There seems to be no consistent/clear advise.

You have to put some tweaks on your UFW rules, and everything gonna run well.

Works great with Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon (4.8.6). You also need to download the KDEConnect applet. When both are installed, I have access to my Oneplus 5 phone (with the KDE Connect App from F-Droid). I had to turn off the firewall though, unfortunately I don't know how I would have to configure it to get it running.

Works well with Mint 20 / Cinnamon. I did take the extra step of installing Indicator-KDEConnect also. This meets my needs and more - although I couldn't browse my phone's filesystem. File sending in either direction is fine though.

KDE notifications doesn't use native mint notifications tray (Mint 20 Cinnamon) and just appear and dissapear. There is no way to manage the notifications synced from android to mint desktop. Please fix this

I think I had some trouble setting it up (had to allow it in the firewall), but after I got it connected it has worked great.
