This is how i remote control my Raspberry pi from Ubuntu

  1. Connect over SSH.  Open a terminal window from Ubuntu and type the following command:
    ssh pi@192.168.0.119
  2. Enter your password (raspberry is the default), and response should look like this:
    pi@raspberrypi:~$
  3. Start the VNC server:
    vncserver :0 -geometry 1400×1000 -depth 24
  4. The response should look like this:
    New ‘X’ desktop is raspberrypi:0
  5. Open a new terminal window from Ubuntu and connect to your pi:
    vncviewer 192.168.0.119
  6. To stop the vnc server (on the Raspberry pi)
    vncserver -kill :1
