'Connection Failed'. I paired my laptop to my phone via Bluetooth, it paired successfully. I open up Libreoffice Impress Remote and chhose my laptop. After that, nothing happens. It shows an error. 'Make sure you've enabled remote control Impress>Tools>Options>General enable remote control'. I've enabled the option and restart libreoffice. It still doesn't work like the video you've shown. I am running Xperia Z2 5.1.1, my laptop is Windows 8.1. Libreoffice Impress version 18.104.22.168 on Windows8.1. I'll edit this comment to inform if everything worked out.
Why it not noticed if the remote presentation feature and experimental feature was enabled you must restart the Libreoffice? that make confused the users if you not noticed that! By the way, It's work on me! so I should not buy a wireless mouse or wireless remote presentation :p
Gives connection error over Bluetooth. Everything else has no problem connecting to the PC over Bluetooth. Over WiFi it allows you to create link and enter code on the PC side but then it just crashes. Zenfone 3 running Android 7
Works on Linux and Windows XP (after enabling Remote Control in Impress General options AND allowing program to communicate through firewall) and is awesome. However, for Windows 7 and 8 laptops, this app fails to finds computers or unable to connect to specific IPs on the network; always reports "Connection failed". Tried app on iPad mini as well as Android 4.4 cell. Tried disabling firewall altogether in Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines and even specifying the IP address of the computer running Impress but the app still can't find the computer! Great app but not workable for me in Windows 7 or 8. Running LibreOffice 5.1.3 on Windows. Does anyone running Windows 7 or 8 have the same problem? anyone with a solution? Need it to work on Windows 7 or 8!!!
I used to carry extra long VGA and USB cables so that I could position my laptop on a rostrum and to one side of a presentation. No longer so! Thank you Impress Remote. I recommend just using a hand held lasar pointer and don't give up on Bluetooth connection problems - it does work! My own problems with Bluetooth are due to a poor laptop and not this App. For large auditoriums or where the Bluetooth range is poor, definitely set up a WiFi connection. Now my laptop can be wired and left close to the data projector, and I just stand nearby, tablet in hand. Much better for audience attention as I can move about. Highly recommended. Improvements? Better resolution for the notes on handheld devices would be nice, but not essential. For some reason hidden slides in a presentation are shown by this App, the workaround is easy - save and use an abridged presentation.
It works amazingly! I have used LibreOffice Impress Remote at least on one professional occasion: It helped me deliver a smooth presentation! I would've never guessed my HUAWEI Honor smartphone could become a darling slide-show remote control...
