Are there any plans to make UbuntuMATE compatible with Wi-Fi Screen Mirroring?

There’s this one that I think every distribution is missing including the mighty Ubuntu, Screen Mirroring through Wi-Fi has been natively present on W1nd0ws since 8.1 version. And there’s something that neither the Gnome, nor the KDE has seem to have accomplished. I believe that integration with this sort of method would make UbuntuMATE gain an even greater advantage over the older bros, besides is one more differential point on the table.

Can you sketch a little bit out how this could be implemented? Do you need a command-line option or a visual interface, etc?

@orschiro, have you never seen it used before?
When you get to a conference room and people can just activate a screen in their settings through the wifi without having to plug a cable in?
@Adhans, I think that this is something that will be implemented in standard Ubuntu first though, then trickle downstream.


@ouroumov, no. At our office, we still use VGA or HDMI to connect to a display. :smile:

But this sounds pretty amazing. I can see how this could be nicely integrated into the monitor preferences screen or maybe even directly integrated into network manager?
