Mirror Android notifications on a Linux desktop.

LinConnect Client: https://github.com/hauckwill/linconnect-client/


LinConnect is a project to mirror all Android notifications on a Linux desktop using LibNotify.

Please note that this is my first time using Python (though I do have experience in other languages), so the code may still be messy. It's a WIP.



  • python2
  • python-pip
  • python-gobject
  • libavahi-compat-libdnssd1
  • cherrypy (python package)
  • pybonjour (python package)


Simply run linconnect_server.py to start the server, then start the Android application. The Android application will detect the server and display it in the server list. Selecting it will send a test notification to the server.

Simple Setup (tested on Ubuntu 13.10)

Enter the following command into a console to install the server, set it to autostart, and run LinConnect. The server will be automatically updated daily.

$ wget --quiet https://raw.github.com/hauckwill/linconnect-server/master/LinConnectServer/install.sh; \
chmod +x install.sh; \

To remove LinConnect, delete the ~/.linconnect directory.
