Mirror Android notifications on a Linux desktop.

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 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; \
chmod +x; \

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