KDE Connect doesn't see any device


I’m having some issues trying to get KDE connect to work on my computer. When I open the Devices window I see nothing listed.
When I open the KDE connect app on my phone I see nothing listed as well. The only topics I found on this issue were firewall related,
but disabling the firewall does nothing for me.

OS/Application versions used:

  • openSUSE 13.1 x86_64
  • kdeconnect-kde-0.4.2-2.2.x86_64 RPM
  • KDE Connect v0.4.2 on my phone
  • Android version 4.4.2 (CM 11 NIGHTLY) on a GSM Galaxy Nexus

Please note that I have tried the following:

  • stopped my firewall on the desktop
  • checked if the KDE service is started (it is)
  • the desktop and phone are on the same network and i can ping my desktop from my phone

I would greatly appreciate any assistance.
