  • Save webcam photo in the Images folder and send to phone:
    file="$HOME/Images/WebcamImage_$(date "+%Y%m%d_%H%M%S").jpg"; ffmpeg -f video4linux2 -s 1280x720 -i /dev/video0 -ss 0:0:2 -frames 1 "${file}" && kdeconnect-cli -d $(kdeconnect-cli -a --id-only) --share "${file}"

Send output of any command to your phone

  • Check the status of baloo indexing:
    kdeconnect-cli -d $(kdeconnect-cli -a --id-only) --ping-msg "$(balooctl status)"
  • Check lines 5, 7 and 9 of speedtest-cli:

  • Check whether service sshd is running:
    kdeconnect-cli -d $(kdeconnect-cli -a --id-only) --ping-msg "$(systemctl status sshd|grep Active)"
  • Check the top 5 applications using most RAM:
    kdeconnect-cli -d $(kdeconnect-cli -a --id-only) --ping-msg "$(ps -eo pid,%mem,cmd --sort=-%mem | head -n 6)"
