Re­mote con­trol

Linux Format - - Tutorials -

If you have an iPhone or An­droid de­vice you can re­motely con­trol pre­sen­ta­tions from your smart­phone us­ing a mo­bile app called

Lib re Of­fice Im­press Re­mote. Once you’ve in­stalled the a pp, launch Lib re Of­fice Im­press and head to Tools> Op­tions. Then nav­i­gate to Li­bre­Of­fice Im­press>Gen­eral and then en­sure that the En­able re­mote con­trol box is checked. This en­ables in­bound ac­cess from your smart­phone and adds use­ful menu en­tries you will need later.

Next you should pair your smart­phone with your work­sta­tion, and the fully sup­ported way of do­ing this is by us­ing Blue­tooth. If you’re us­ing a desktop rather than a lap­top you may need to add an ex­tra USB don­gle for this to work. To pair them, en­able Blue­tooth on both de­vices, make them vis­i­ble to each other and then use your dis­tro’s set­tings panel to add your smart­phone as a de­vice the sys­tem recog­nises. There’s also ex­per­i­men­tal sup­port for Wi-Fi pair­ing, which you can en­able from Tools> Op­tions and then Lib re Of­fice> Ad­vanced. Note that check­ing the box for En­able ex­per­i­men­tal fea­tures may lead to strange be­hav­iour else­where in your of­fice suite.

Once both de­vices are paired you can ei­ther con­nect from the mo­bile a pp it­self or from in­side Lib re Of­fice Im­press via Slide Show>Im­press Re­mote.
