I've really enjoyed using this on Kubuntu, but I switched to Mint 18 a few days back and am experiencing exactly the same error. I uninstalled (including the PPA) and followed the Linux Mint advice at http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/kde-connec ... oid-linux/, but still getting the same error.

I have the same problem, apparently people with newer Ubuntu versions have it too. Let's hope the authors update the kde connect indicator soon.

Do you have kdeconnect-kde5 instead of kdeconnect-kde? if so you need the newer https://github.com/vikoadi/indicator-kd ... ommits/KF5 branch

As far as I know I have the normal KDEconnect-indicator. and as i said, it's already listed as an issue on github, that it is not working on newer ubuntu distributions and Linux Mint 18. What is the difference with KDEconnectkde5?

WORKAROUND: Remove your installation of the indicator and kdeconnect and install kdeconnect-plasma instead!

apt install kdeconnect-plasma

Reinstall the indicator via PPA

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vikoadi/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install kdeconnect

and start do "indicator-kdeconnect" in the terminal to start it again, it should work on ubuntu 16 and mint 18!

I tried this and it works for me now

I'm still failing to get anything like a connection recognition between my Android Samsung note 10.1 and my mint 18 PC. I have the app on the slab, and installed the program in Mint from the package manager (3 items). I looked up the firewall port and opened them as well (1714:1964, tcp & udp, in & out) but no joy. Neither machine can see the other. I even added the explicit IP of the PC on the slab's app, but still no luck. Help? Alternatives to KDE connect that do work?

I don't think the stuff from the package manager is the right stuff.. have you tried what i posted?

yes, I did - uninstalled everything kdeconnect related and reinstalled only the plasma thing. Still no joy, but I"ll not be able to get back to it for a bit. On vacation :)

Some of the issues are explained here, in pretty subjective way: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/kde-connec ... oid-linux/ .I was trying to get it to work for hours. Finally I uninstalled all kdeconnect packages sudo apt-get purge indicator-kdeconnect kdeconnect kdeconnect-plasma . Then installed deb from the site linked above and indicator-kdeconnect again. Now Kde Connect indicator is listed in my application menu and the program starts normally, hopefully it will work for some of you as well.

Edit suddenly the indicator stoped to work and I couldnt run it anymore, I've repeated some of the steps posted above but this time I installed different version of indicator-kdeconnect (indicator-kdeconnect_0.1-0-41-ubuntu16.04.1_amd64) from here https://code.launchpad.net/~vikoadi/+ar ... /+packages . Now the indicator doesn't show on desktop (no gui) but some of the function like remote control, multimedia control and file transfer are working (well, one way only- phone to pc). Edit2 sometimes I have run the indicator with sudo command/ kde helper from playstore is a cool ap- it monitors the clipboard of my pc (working as well). Sorry for my messy post, maybe somebody with better knowledge about linux can look into it.

Workaround worked to run the app. No connection though.
