- This procedure did not fully work for me.
- Use Intel WDS Linux Miracast source/sink install guide.
connmanis required instead of NetworkManager
This page is just documenting my attempt, to point to Intel’s work on Miracast. Linux support for Miracast/WDS is gradually increasing thanks to Intel Open Source Technology Center 01.org.
Miracast on Android
I noted earlier that support for Miracast from Google via Android seems to be decreasing. Generally you need a high-end Android device like a Blackberry (e.g. KeyONE) to have Miracast on Android. You should see your Miracast adapter pop up in a second or two on your Android devices from Settings > Display > Cast Unfortunately, some devices like the Nvidia Shield Tablet do not work with Miracast–the Miracast adapter will not show up in the Cast menu.
Miracast on Linux
- Miracast WDS Prereq
apt install connman g++ cmake flex libbison-dev libglib2.0-dev libgstreamer1.0-dev
- Compile and Install Miracast WDS on Linux
git clone https://github.com/01org/wds cd wds cmake . make
- Test Miracast WDS Linux–I issued the commands at the WDS Github and found myself with non-working Wifi at all after installing
connman. I was lucky to get Wifi back by uninstalling
I did not pursue this further, as I want to have both normal Wifi and Miracast. Perhaps as Intel does more work on Miracast for Linux, it will become more usable for the general public.
No package ‘gio-2.0’ found
