Android Mouse App (Ultimate Mouse Lite)

Postby Tool » Sun Jul 28, 2013 1:24 am

I'm having a little trouble knowing how to install this on the PC end. I read the instructions, but am not doing something right. Ok, first is the read me, then the install.

*****************
* ULTIMATE CONTROL
******************

This is the agent application of "Ultimate Control". Along with the mobile application, it allows you to take control of your mouse and keyboard through Wifi (local netowrk) and Bluetooth.

PRECONDITIONS:
*************

In order to run the application, the Java Virtual Machine must be installed. It is posible to use the OpenJDK, which lots of linux distributions come with. If yours doesn't, you can use a package manager to get "openjdk-6-jre" package, or you can run the following command:

sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jre

In order to use the bluetooth capabilities, you will need the "libbluetooth-dev" package. Again, you can get it through a package manager or with the following command:

sudo apt-get install libbluetooth-dev


INSTALLATION:
************

In the terminal, you will have to run the "install" script. Superuser permissions are required so you can run it with the following command:

sudo sh install

If everything went ok, you can now open the program with the following command (no matter in what directory you are):

ucontrol

You can also use the launcher available to open the program: "Ultimate Control". It is also possible to copy it anywhere.

UNINSTALL:
*********

Before uninstalling the program, it is required that Ultimate Control is totally closed. Then, just run the "uninstall" script with superuser priviledges:

sudo sh uninstall

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS:
********************

Ultimate Control Agent is a Java based program. It is packed in a jar file wich is located in the "lib" folder and named "UControl.jar". It is possible to run it using the following command:

java -jar ucontrol.jar

And here's what it says on the install. This is not a terminal output, but what the text document says labeled "install"

#!/bin/sh
echo Installing...
mkdir /usr/lib/ucontrol
cp -f -r lib/ucontrol.jar /usr/lib/ucontrol/ucontrol.jar
cp -f -r lib/icon.png /usr/lib/ucontrol/icon.png
cp -f -r bin/ucontrol /usr/bin/ucontrol
chmod 744 /usr/lib/ucontrol/*
echo OK!

Thanks if anybody can give me tips or even a recommendation for a better running app. I saw this one also had the keyboard function, so I was shooting for that and mouse.

Okay. This is what I did.
1. download from negusoft
2. installed jdk 6 (I am on arch, so jdk6 jre6)
3. extracted the ucontrol .tar.gz
4. cd to extracted folder
5.
Code: Select all
sudo sh install

6. Reboot. (Not necessarily needed. I just rebooted to help with java install)
7. Made sure java was in my $PATH.
8.
Code: Select all
ucontrol


Then I got this:

Ok, I did exactly that in that order and says cannot open or install for the sh install command. I even tried moving it to a different folder and extracting it there then trying again. It was in the Downloads (cd Downloads). Thanks. Oh, and I'm not sure if the java was installed in the $PATH, but I did install it via synaptic and I did that first.

I got it now. Must have had a bad download or something. I downloaded it again and went fine. Thanks. I also just figured out it's like the only app that isn't able to use hotspot or adhoc from the phone. :/ Thanks again. I'm playing around with a couple others trying to get em to work and will wait till i'm totally stumped before I ask.

I just use Webkey. Technically it does the exact same thing without having to mess with all that, plus if anyone steals your device you can find 'em and beat 'em. Well, not the exact same thing, but you control your device through your browser, so you can type, use your mouse, etc.., comes in handy for terminal use on the android.

Thanks. My real goal is to use my device to control my PC though. To use my phone as the mouse and keyboard for my PC. I tried Ubuntu Remote, but the app on my phone doesn't select the "key" file after I move it from my PC to my Android. I have another Android phone with no service, so what I'm gonna try to do is install the app this post is about on that and use my phone as the hotspot that way they'll be on the same network. The ones that say they'll run from the adhoc connect I can't get running and not all support Linux

Well, why didn't you say so?!

Teamviewer

Also if you are using Windows, Crazy Remote is sweet.

Teamviewer is a little easier, especially if you are constantly installing new OS, because you can use it with all of your computers.

This app was included in Black Opal even.
