Droid VNC Server

On your android Phone:

  • Install Droid VNC Server from playstore.

Using this application you can control your phone from any browser.

On that same application,go to settings->User settings->Click on Create new user to create a new user with login credentials.
On your Ubuntu PC:

  • After that a page will open and ask you to give the username and password.Login with the same username and password.
  • After loged into your account,you can view your phone and operate your android phone from there.
