Remoting into Desktop Using PinePhone?
#1
Hello,

I am extremely interested in getting a PinePhone. I have this wild dream to use my PinePhone with external peripherals to remote into a desktop PC so I can use all of my juicy desktop applications on the go! One PinePhone to rule them all. Genius, right? I am imagining something like Teamviewer with the lowest latency possible.


DWService:

The best solution that I have in mind is DWService for PinePhone. How well does this work? Has anyone ever tried it or know where I could find a review?

Apache Guacamole:


Similar to DWService, [url= https://guacamole.apache.org/]Apache Guacamole
seems promising since the client uses a web browser.


Parsec:

I am a curious new member in the Linux community, and I need a lesson on ARM distros. Can software intended for Raspbian run on PinePhone?

Hear me out... My thought process here is this: if Rasbian is an ARM port of Debian, and PinePhone is an ARM platform, then the software has a chance of working, right?

I am wondering if the remote control software Parsec will run on a Debian-based OS on PinePhone. Parsec officially supports the RaspberryPi and has a ".deb" file available for download. The setup guide for installing Parsec on the RaspberryPi is available here.



If anyone already knows of a working solution, I'm all ears!


Thank you for your time. Smile

If debian has all the dependencies it could actually work. Try downloading and installing it with "dpkg -i name_of_deb_file".
I have seen there is a package "parsec47" on debian unstable. Not sure if it is what you are looking for.

Alternatively you could always run a VNC server on your desktop machine and install a VNC client on your phone (you would need something like dyndns and port forwarding though).

Thanks for replying.

After more thought, I am looking for a solution on Ubuntu Touch.

The VNC server is a great idea, but I couldn't port forward on my University's network. Are there any ways I could reliably get around this?

What about the web based applications, DWService (has a download for PinePhone) and Apache Guacamole, that I listed above? Could those work?


Thanks.
