Wondering how to connect your iphone to Zorin Connect? I found an answer so i figure i'd put it here.

  1. Install the KDE Connect app on iPhone - completely compatible with Zorin Connect.
  2. Enter the following command:
sudo ufw allow 1714:1764/udp && sudo ufw allow 1714:1764/tcp

What does this do? Opens the 1714 and 1764 ports normally blocked by the Gnome Uncomplicated Firewall (ufw). These are necessary to connect to the KDE Connect app.

  1. Refresh listings on phone and pc and it will connect just fine
    To read old video DVD/VCD have to install virtualbox with win 7(tryied with win10 but become very slow).
    Tried wine , crossover 22.1 and bottles but no sucess with those special congress videos.
    The gnome app videos I sugest substitute by VLC or SMplayer more easy to use.
    Thanks to the Saff and excuse me by not citate everyone which helped the N00b (myself).
