How to get Android notifications on your Linux desktop

LinConnect is a rather convenient way to see exactly what you would see on your phone on your (Linux) computer. It creates a private web server between your phone and your computer on a Wi-Fi network, and recreates Android’s notifications in the upper-right notifications. In my own experience, it’s more than just an at-a-glance connection to your phone. It’s also a smart way to get all kinds of notifications on your computer—email, social, text message, “now playing” for music—and much easier to set up than all the individual Linux apps that require fussing about with system settings.
