I have an android tablet that i use to remote control my ubuntu 13.04 netbook, the program i use is team viewer. you ca only control the mouse and it is pretty rubbish like that.

Since TeamViewer is closed-source, it's up to them to add multitouch gesture support. However, you could probably get some nice gesture features using Easystroke. It uses the mouse to do gestures.

Install it by clicking below:

Will this affect the touchscreen when I remote. – Apad121 Jun 7 '13 at 7:27
Can't say for sure. Best way is to just try it out. If it doesn't work, uninstall and let us know that it doesn't. – Kupiakos Jun 7 '13 at 16:21
