I don't know how to start KDEConnect on the desktop. There's no listing 
for it in the menus and running kdeconnect from "Run Command" does nothing.

I found a website [ http://tinyurl.com/pnzfe9y ] that says I need to 
update to a newer version of KDEConnect than what is now installed for 
it to work reliably. I've been trying for  while but installing from CLI 
just stalls like it's waiting for input but won't accept anything. Even 
with the ppa added to the sources Synaptic only shows the older version. 
I found UbuntuUpdates.org and downloaded the deb file. Will try 
installing that.

Fast is fine, but accuracy is final.
