KDE Connect from flatpak

I installed KDE Connect from the software center. When it opens it display a message that it cannot connect to the dbuss service. I fiddled with KDE Connect’s permissions using FlatSeal, but nothing I did allowed it to connect to the dbus service.

The flatpak application appears to be an “indicator” and I am wondering if there might be something else that needs to be installed to make it work. thanks for any suggestions.

The “Indicator-KDEConnect” available in the App Center is not the full KDE Connect application, it’s just a part of it. The application itself is not (yet) available in App Center, as it’s not published by the KDE team at Flathub.

To install KDE Connect, you manually need to add KDE’s flatpak repository and fetch it using the following commands:

sudo flatpak remote-add kdeapps https://distribute.kde.org/kdeapps.flatpakrepo
flatpak update --appstream -y
flatpak install -y kdeapps org.kde.kdeconnect

Thank you. That was just what I needed and KDE Connect is now working just fine.

I am amazed at your knowledge of the inner working of Endless.
