DexOnLinux
Samsung announced a new feature with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, the ability to access Samsung Dex on a Windows or MacOS device. This in my opinion was a game changer as it could allow users to use the insane power of their Galaxy Note 10/Note 10+ devices on inexpensive hardware. Samsung released a client for MacOS and Windows but as usual left us ChromeOS/Linux users out in the cold. It turns out that there is a way to hack it together using nothing but open source tools (no Wine). Once I got this working on my Ubuntu Desktop, getting it to work on my Chromebook was trivial (not x64 only with Crostini). You dont even need to have your phone rooted.

What Works
-Keyboard/Mouse
-Shared Clipboard
-Drag and Drop of APK files to install them

What Does Not Work
-Audio does not route to the desktop
-Right Click does not work
