In this tutorial, we will see how to control any Android device remotely on your Ubuntu/Linux Mint desktop using both your mouse and keyboard. To do this, we will use the Seven Square tool which will allow you to view your Android device (smartphone, tablet, etc.) screen directly on your computer or laptop.

With your keyboard or mouse, you will be able to control your device remotely without the need to tap on the screen of your Android device. Before we start, make sure you have ADB tools installed on your system. If not, run this command from the terminal:

sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb


Seven Square is based on QT, so install these dependencies:

sudo apt-get install qt4-qmake libqt4-dev libqtcore4 libqtgui4

Now install the tool using these commands:

git clone https://github.com/yangh/sevensquare.git 
cd sevensquare 
sudo make install

Connect your Android device to your computer via USB cable and ensure it is connected using "adb devices" command. Also, make sure USB debugging is enabled on your device:

Then start Seven Square using this command:


Wait now until your Android device screen shows up:
