I'm looking to mirror my Ubuntu destop onto my TV by using my PS3. All done via wifi. Similar to the 'AirPlay Mirroring' in Mac OS X Mountain Lion.

Is this possible? How would I go about it. To be clear, I don't want to share movies in particular, rather to send my screen exactly as I see it.

You simply want to share your screen to the PS3, without being able to interact with it from the PS3? – dobey Feb 9 at 1:38

Serviio has this functionality. I am fairly new to Linux/Ubuntu and I could not get it to work. But Serviio is the best DLNA server I have found for Windows or Ubuntu. Using Serviio from and VLC player. Others have been able to do this with Serviio and Ubuntu. Good Luck, if you could figure out how to get it working and Layman's guide would help me out. Here is a link to their instructions:

Hmm, I tried to set the VLC stream up as mentioned on the wiki and connect from the PS3 browser but no deal. Thanks for the suggestion. – Richard Paul Feb 21 '12 at 7:38
