It doesn’t have to be KDE connect itself, but something similar that I can connect my phone to a Cinnamon or MATE DE?
KDE connect should work with cinnamon and mate. If you are looking for a gnome specific solution there is gsconnect. The difference being is gsconnect is kdeconnect worked for gnome shell integration. Since you aren’t looking for a gnome specific solution I would just stick to Kdeconnect.
Thanks! I didn’t know KDE connect works on Cinnamon and MATE.
You need indicator-kdeconnect from aur or chaotic:
2 aur/indicator-kdeconnect-git r599.070ebaa-2 (+41 0.00) (Installed: r625.669bdd5-1) Integrate KDEConnect on desktop environments that use AppIndicators (e.g. Unity) 1 chaotic-aur/indicator-kdeconnect 1:0.9.4-1 (198.1 KiB 454.2 KiB) Integrate KDEConnect on desktop environments that use AppIndicators (e.g. Unity)
Then it will work in other DEs.
