gsconnect windows

GS Connect v12 is the new version of this extension to integrate Android into our GNOME Shell and to be able to make a perfect integration of our Android devices on our desktop. The tool uses the KDE Connect protocol implemented by KDE for Plasma desktop environments, but specially designed to work in GNOME-based environments, since it does not depend on other KDE packages to function fully.

In this new version released a short time ago, they have included numerous interesting improvements, such as a better connection through sshfs that will make navigation through our Android device possible from our desktop. Some code patches have also been included to repair some bugs from previous versions, such as the alignment of icons, and many other improvements that we will now explain to you ...With GSConnect you will be able to be aware of the notifications of your Android smartphone or tablet on your desktop and vice versa, synchronize the clipboard, browse the directories and files of your Android device using the same file manager that you use on your desktop distro (in in this case Nautilus), send files between both computers, send commands to Android devices and much more, that is, a complete suite of tools that gives us many possibilities to integrate our Android into distros.

Specifically, in this version GSConnect v12 some improvements have been included related to URIs, sshfs as we have indicated, respects the GNOME configuration for notifications, corrects the alignment of icons, corrects some problems with Python 3 when Fedora 28 was used, now the bug that pointed out that it was not supported has been fixed dbus-broker, fixed some problems with alerts in Nautilus, etc., even included some updates for Chinese, Estonian, Hungarian, Japanese, Russian, Brazilian, Portuguese, Czech, French and Polish translations.
