How to install miraclecast?

Post by Nitya Deva » Mon May 27, 2019 4:31 am

I am a Linux-Newbie and I have no idea how to install miraclecast.
Could anyone please help me?
I try to connect my Laptop with my LG-TV.
System is Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamom on an Acer Aspire E 15.
Thank you very much!

Got instructions here: https://launchpad.net/~thopiekar/+archi ... iraclecast

Open the terminal and copy/paste each line individually to it and enter your sudo password:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thopiekar/miraclecast

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install miraclecast
If you get a message telling you it wants to remove other software, abort.
