Device is not available


It used to be that I would get notifications from my phone (Pixel 6) to my desktop (Plasma, whatever version is in Kubuntu 22.04) automatically, but at some point in the last few months that has stopped working.

It seems that there is no background connectivity; when I open the Kdeconnect panel in Plasma it tells me that the paired device is not available, but it is listed and as soon as I click on it, I can see all the settings and browse the phone. But if I close the panel and then reopen it, I’m back to the device not being available.

Am I missing something?

Thanks for any help!


I was missing something - my phone was connecting to my guest WiFi network! X-( All good now!
