  • KDE Connect Arrives on iPhone and iPad For Linux Fans

    KDE Connect has been around for years as a companion Android app for connecting to Linux PCs, similar to Microsoft Link to Windows (formerly “Your Phone”). Now there’s finally a KDE Connect app for iPhone and iPad.

    KDE Connect has quietly appeared on the Apple App Store for iPhone and iPad, seemingly without an official announcement (at least so far). Just like the Android version, it connects to a Linux PC running the KDE Connect application to a phone or tablet. You can then synchronize your clipboard across desktop and mobile, share files and links, and run commands on a PC from a phone. You can also use an iPhone as a virtual touchpad or presentation remote for a linked PC.

  • KDE Connect is Now Available for iPhone & iPad - OMG! Ubuntu!

    An official KDE Connect mobile client is now available on the Apple App Store.

    The addition of this official iOS app means folks with an iPhone and/or iPad can benefit from a deeper set of integration between their mobile devices and their Linux desktop.

  • Easily Connect your iPhone with Linux as KDE Connect Arrives on the App Store

    KDE Connect is an open-source tool that lets you connect your mobile phone with your PC.

    Originally, KDE Connect supported Android devices to connect with Linux. Gradually, they added support for Windows.

    Now, it looks like you can use KDE Connect with your iOS device (iPhone or iPad) to connect to your Windows/Linux computer.

KDE Connect comes to iPhone with an iOS app

  • KDE Connect comes to iPhone with an iOS app -

    It’s been a while since we dedicated an article to KDE Connect, one of the best inventions from the project responsible for the well-known and powerful desktop environment. Far from being stagnant, it has been expanding its domains to recently reach iOS and iPadOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) and definitively establish itself as a true multi-platform remote control solution.

    Although it is good news that KDE Connect is coming to iOS, it seems that the application has some limitations compared to the Android version, and the worst part is that these limitations probably cannot be resolved. You don’t have to be a lynx to imagine that the reason for this possible scenario is the tight control that Apple exercises over its own ecosystem and therefore its operating systems, since the Cupertino giant is not exactly a lover of freedom.

KDE Connect Brings iPhone Connectivity to Linux

  • KDE Connect Brings iPhone Connectivity to Linux

    The iPhone and Linux go together like strawberries and mustard. Apple has no interest in supporting Linux and most open-source developers hate Apple and its proprietary platforms. But some iPhone users also use Linux, and while no one would expect the same tight integration that the iPhone and Mac share, it would at least be nice to exchange the occasional file between devices.

    Linux was actually ahead of Apple on smartphone integration, at least on Android. Since 2013, KDE Connect has let Linux users wirelessly share clipboards, notifications, files, URLs, text messages, and more between their Android phones and Linux desktops.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
