          There is a android usb connect in menu>applications>antiX for another way to send files.

          How to Search for AntiX solutions to your problems


            There are multiple and easy to use ways to share files between devices on the same network, other than Droopy:

            Using a web browser in each device:
            – snapdrop.net
            – sharedrop.io

            Using an android app on the phone and a browser on the computer:
            – PlainApp (available both on the Play Store and in F-droid)

            Using an app installed on the phone and in the computer:
            – LocalSend (available for 64bits antiX computers – as .deb or .appimage-, android devices, Ios devices, Windows, MacOS)- https://localsend.org/#/download

            Create a Samba shared folder on your antiX computer and access it from your phone:
            – On antiX 23/23.1 configure a shared folder using the GUI from Control Centre, then use any android app that allows you to connect to a shared folder- my File Manager in my android phone “Material Files” (that I downloaded from F-droid) allows me do to that.

              KDE Connect is really good and is available in the repos so its just a “sudo apt install” away. Make sure to disable any firewall when setting it up.
