I'm running Arch Linux and using an Android phone (Galaxy S8). My goal is to control my Arch desktop using my phone over Bluetooth. I will be in another room within Bluetooth range, but out of visible sight of the PC monitor.
In particular, I want to control Audacious music player using more than just generic play/pause/previous/next buttons. I would like to see the Audacious UI on my phone to have full control over the music selections.
So far I have tried this client/server pair:
- unified-remote-server on Arch (installed from AUR)
- Unified Remote Full by Unified Intents from the Play Store
The generic "media remote" function works, but it only provides the basic play/pause/previous/next controls.
Is anyone using a Bluetooth Android remote app for full desktop access (similar to vnc)? If not, is there a way to make the VLC remote for Android work over Bluetooth?
