    Is there a way to monitor Samsung phone's charging status in Xubuntu's battery applet



    Is there a way to monitor Samsung phone's charging status in Xubuntu's battery applet, just like it monitors my iPad charging status?

    KDEConnect has many useful applications to integrate your phone and PC including a battery monitor. Though it's a KDE app, you can install it on all flavors of Ubuntu. There's a companion app in the Play Store that you load on your phone. Very handy.
    If you ask for help, do not abandon your request. Please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    I've tried the flathub version of KDE Connect:
    Code:
    flatpak install flathub com.github.bajoja.indicator-kdeconnect
    But I'm getting this error though when I click on it:
    Code:
    cannot connect to KDE Connect DBus Service
