'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 126.96.36.199 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
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!!!
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...
Doesn't work at all. Tried many times BT and WiFi, always writes that connection can't be established. Samsung SM-P601 and Win 8.1 =(
Works perfectly! Had to restart LibreOffice after changing the settings but after that it works perfectly. Does exactly what I need. Laser pointer doesn't work but I don't use it anyway.
