Ubuntu/Mint/Gentoo/Whatever/Linux Remote Control

Simply a SSH Server is needed:
sudo apt-get install openssh-server

- full keyboard
- mouse/touchpad
- list files on filesystem
- rename, delete and upload files on your filesystem
- add custom shortcuts
- add shortcut groups
- choose between different themes
- Wake on Lan widget
- export/import device
- scan network for devices

- control media player play/stop/prev/next
- control audio volume
- take screenshot of screen or webcam and send it to your mobile device
- shutdown
- restart
- lock/unlock screen
- send keyboard input

For some commands you need to have xdotool installed.

Wake On Lan
1. sudo apt-get install ethtool
2. sudo ethtool -s eth0 wol g
3. insert the following two lines into the autostart script(/etc/rc.local)
sleep 5
ethtool -s eth0 wol g
4. open /etc/init.d/halt and set NETDOWN=no
5. check and activate Wake On Lan and/or Wake on PCI(E) your mainboard bios

Private key login
Step 1
> ssh-keygen -t rsa
To ensure safety enter a passphrase.

Step 2
Then, paste the content of the public key ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub into the ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file on the remote host.
> cat id_rsa.pub >> .ssh/authorized_keys

Step 3
Copy the private key ~/.ssh/id_rsa to your Android phone and load the file from the 'Add Device' screen.

    Got better on the one hand. On the other there are more ads than I should tolerate. Fortunately it's not a program I use much.

    yes, SSH configuration takes some time and it is not very flexible when you just want simple and quick remote control, but still very good! and for others who cannot pick files - install some file explorer first and then you will be able to do it

    I have hooked my comp to my TV and with the mouse and keyboard it is fantastic I have no need to go get a wireless keyboard and now have no issue streaming stuff from my comp/gaming. Use the media options when I'm around the house to play my music. And the command line to update my software when I go to bed. Incredibly useful

    But, the audio volume command is uneditable. I need to change 'Master' to 'Speaker'. Great apps for controlling my OpenWrt router.

    Hi after I reinstalled the app after paying for it, due to phone update. But now ads are back and I don't know how to get them off again. Any help?
