Theres a new tool just released this week that can help linux users casting from our desktop to Chromcast. And this one actually works.

I've been running it for of a day now on my Ubuntu 16.04, the only problem i have is that the indicator doesn't work yet so i have to run it from terminal.

 

Got it here.

I had dependensy problems but installed them manually as described on omgubuntu.

Hi. I am the developer of mkchromecast. I opened an issue in the github's bug tracker https://github.com/muammar/mkchromecast/issues/10. After a feedback in the report, I realized I hadn't put `python-pyqt5` as a dependency but as a suggested package. Could you test if installing the aforementioned package solve the problem?. 

 

Thanks.
