... Awesome With ubuntu! You need install previously xdotools in the linux, the ssh-server and configure. The app could be better with more documentation for linux

Used to be magnificient After this latest update my Android mini PC cannot start this. Crashes when connecting to 12.04 server or 14.04 desktop. I checked the new version on my phone too and for some reason I could not remove those annoying arrow keys. What I have been using this for has been to have two large buttons on the screen, restart and shutdown. That is the main use on the mini pc. So I have no need for the arrow keys. I have to check if I really can remove them or not. Did not check it thoroughly. one thing would be great though, if arrow keys would work in the program. I use my remote arrow keys on the mini pc to select the program and launch it, but inside the program I have to switch the remote to emulate a mouse for the rest since arrow keys do not work. I guess I should reinstall the application and see if it fixes the issue. Currently my workaround is to use JuiceSSH to log in to a new account I created which runs a login script to shutdown the system.

So close... There doesn't appear to be a way to remove the ad. Accidentally clicking ads when reaching for the volume ruins everything
