Deployment Method:

📝 NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to

2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade kdeconnect-kde -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade kdeconnect-kde -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

KDE Connect is a multi-platform app that allows your devices to communicate (eg: your phone and your computer).

(Some) Features

  • Shared clipboard: copy and paste between your phone and your computer (or any other device).
  • Notification sync: Read and reply to your Android notifications from the desktop.
  • Share files and URLs instantly from one device to another including some filesystem integration.
  • Multimedia remote control: Use your phone as a remote for Linux media players.
  • Virtual touchpad: Use your phone screen as your computer's touchpad and keyboard.
  • Presentation remote: Advance your presentation slides straight from your phone.

All this is done completely wirelessly, utilising TLS encryption.

How does it work?

KDE Connect consists of a UI-agnostic "core" library that exposes a series of DBus interfaces, and several UI components that consume these DBus interfaces. This way, new UI components can be added to integrate better with specific platforms or desktops, without having to reimplement the protocol or any of the internals. The core KDE Connect library is also divided into 4 big blocks:

  • LinkProviders: Are in charge of discovering other KDE Connect-enabled devices in the network and establishing a Link to them.
  • Devices: Represent a remote device, abstracting the specific Link that is being used to reach it.
  • NetworkPackets: JSON-serializable and self-contained pieces of information to be sent by the plugins between devices.
  • Plugins: Independent pieces of code that implement a specific feature. Plugins will use NetworkPackets to exchange information through the network with other Plugins on a remote Device.


To contribute patches, use KDE Connect's GitLab. There you can also find a task list with stuff to do and links to other relevant resources. It is a good idea to also subscribe to the KDE Connect mailing list. We can also be reached on IRC at #kdeconnect on freenode or on telegram, contributions and feedback are warmly welcomed.

Please know that all translations for all KDE apps are handled by the localization team. If you would like to submit a translation, that should be done by working with the proper team for that language.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
