Can I interface with my android phone to Linux Mint Katya?

Post by GreenAce92 » Sat Apr 28, 2012 8:12 pm

I wanted to if there is a way to sort of remote access your phone by plugging it into your computer and then accessing your phone through the computers interface i.e. keyboard, mouse etc...

This was only for fast use, and perhaps unnecessary but still is it do-able?

If not what would you need in order to use a computer keyboard with an android mobile device?

Thanks for reading

I would think It would be easier to use a Bluetooth keyboard.

This is what I was looking for, but the opposite way...

As in, I would like to see the screen of my android while accessing it through my computer, sort of using my computer as the interface but the phone as the actual computer.

Still what a great app!

Perhaps I just missed this function? I did see the "open on device" through the web but that is just searching something on the browser search prompt, still it is a step in the right direction.
