the KDE-Connect Worked perfectly, but there's no indicator in the panel, thus I can no longer use the features such like "Browse device" conveniently.

Having same problem.

If I try to start the indicator using terminal, I get the following:

** Message: KDEConnectManager.vala:32: KDE Connect daemon found ** Message: Device.vala:73: device : /modules/kdeconnect/devices/1b34fcf462e1729 ** Message: Device.vala:263: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such method 'isReachable' in interface 'org.kde.kdeconnect.device' at object path '/modules/kdeconnect/devices/1b34fcf462e1729' (signature '') ** Message: Device.vala:263: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such method 'isReachable' in interface 'org.kde.kdeconnect.device' at object path '/modules/kdeconnect/devices/1b34fcf462e1729' (signature '') ** Message: Device.vala:263: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such method 'isReachable' in interface 'org.kde.kdeconnect.device' at object path '/modules/kdeconnect/devices/1b34fcf462e1729' (signature '') ** Message: Device.vala:263: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such method 'isReachable' in interface 'org.kde.kdeconnect.device' at object path '/modules/kdeconnect/devices/1b34fcf462e1729' (signature '')

I'm getting the same list of error messages like @Deus-Rex when trying to start it on Arch.

Same problem here.

OS: Ubuntu 15.10 (unity)

KDE Connect works fine. Ping, notifications, remote mouse...

indicator-kdeconnect doen't show the tray icon. Sometimes show this window, other times don't show anything.

user@ubuntu15.10:~$ indicator-kdeconnect

Im having the same issue with a new arch install. No icon. Everything else works fine. I get messages, can even remote mouse. But no icon with Arch + XFCE 4

Any ideas?

I know that I did have the same problem with the ownCloud desktop sync indicator until I changed the apt-repository and got the updated application from there. Maybe that helps finding the cause.

I build packages for Wily. Please use this repository:
https://launchpad.net/~varlesh-l/+archive/ubuntu/ubuntu-tools

  • Delete kdeconnect package and dependecies:
sudo apt-get purge kdeconnect
sudo apt-get autoremove
  • Add repository:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:varlesh-l/ubuntu-tools
sudo apt-get update
  • Open Synaptic, search "kdeconnect" - Install kdeconnect & indicator-kdeconnect packages on Synaptic (select new version "kdeconnect_0.8.1wily2" on Menu-Package)
    Indicator not working because on official Wily repository used kde5-libs, but indicator working only kde4-libs.

Hi and thanks varlesh.

I'm using your instructions. Now i can see the indicator and seems work the most options. Only, when i click "browse the device", nautilus open a blank folder.

Other options like battery percentage, ping, mouse, notifications, etc.. seems work fine.

I never use kdeconnect previously. I forgot something?

I'm also not seeing the icon on gnome shell 3.18 on arch. When I installed systemsettings package for KDE I could pair the device and message notifications work, I can send files from the phone but not to it. I can control the mouse, keyboard on the computer. The only thing missing is browse the phone and send to phone from nemo and the indicator icon. I tried to install the nautilus-kdeconnect python script but it's not working with nemo. Any direction on what to do next will be appreciated.

Any update on this?

nicklan added a commit to nicklan/indicator-kdeconnect that referenced this issue Apr 6, 2016
This change switches is_reachable and is_paired to fetch the properties
instead of trying to call a method.  (not sure if/when this changed in
the dbus interface, but that's how they are presented for me)

This fixes issue vikoadi#31 and (I think) vikoadi#38

This also switches the icon code to use the statusIconName as that seems
to have the correct value.  Also, in DeviceIndicator, no longer append
"-symbolic" as (at least on my system) the icons don't seem to have
that in their names.

I have to correct myself here. @rcristi fork solves the problem. Here are the steps to compile on Xubuntu 16.04:

sudo apt-get install gtk+-3.0-dev libappindicator3-dev valac
git clone https://github.com/rcristi/indicator-kdeconnect
cd indicator-kdeconnect
mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr
make
sudo make install

Here's a binary I built with checkinstall

As @vikoadi said before this is bgecause of Qt5 @tristan-k (or at east this is what I think) anyway I will try it soon with the fork you said 😄

With a new build from https://github.com/rcristi/indicator-kdeconnect I got it working for me. I was running into the same issue.
PPA here: https://launchpad.net/~lutostag/+archive/ubuntu/indicator-kdeconnect-test

(couldn't get it to build for precise with the versioned dependencies). Not sure if they are necessary of not.

Still can't get remote file browsing to work though.

@lutostag , still can't get indicator visible in Ubuntu 15.10 even with your PPA.

@lutostag lutostag commented Jul 24, 2016

@bam80 yeah unfortunately it is still a bit finicky. The only way I get it to work currently is to run:
kcmshell5 kcm_kdeconnect # make sure it it connected to your device, then only after that...
indicator-kdeconnect #works for me and shows up in the systemtray.

@vikoadi @bam80 using @tristan-k 's .deb and running @lutostag 's commands as a startup script, i have managed to reliably get the indicator to appear in ubuntu 16.04, only if my screen is turned on

LXLE 16.04.1 got indicator-kdeconnect working of sorts with this, but no nice icon in the applet-indicators thingy at the top of LXLE
