I hope I haven't put this thread in the wrong part of the forum? If I have, sorry about that, please move it to where it belongs?

I just saw this over on the Manjaro forum, & it looks incredibly interesting. I tried to install scrcpy via apt, & I looked in the MX package installer, & in Synaptic & couldn't see scrcpy. Perhaps it goes by another name?

Anyway, here are a couple of links, for those that are interested in controlling the Android phone via their PC:

https://github.com/Genymobile/scrcpy

It works on X.org & on Wayland too. :)

You can download & build the package from the github page (which is apparently not hard to do).

This one captured my interest so I downloaded and followed the instructions to build and install it on the latest live MX18.3 64-bit iso running in a VM.

The build was very easy as the developer said and all I needed to do when finished was to run it from its current location.

Code: Select all

./run x
If you want a copy of the finished build, PM me and I will send you a link to download a ready to use compressed copy. You will need to install the adb package before you try to run it and have your phone prepared (usb debugging enabled) and connected through the USB, or maybe you can ask nicely on the package requests page and one of the packagers may be able to package it for you.
