In this tutorial I’ll show you how to easily connect to your Ubuntu Desktop using Android Phone.
- An Ubuntu PC connected to your home network (I’m on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS).

3.) Find your Ubuntu IP address by click on Network Manager icon -> Information
4.) On Android Phone, install android-vnc-viewer from Google Play for free. Then open it, type in a nickname, IP address of Ubuntu, and the password to connect:
That’s it. Enjoy!
