    Hi
    I'm the happy owner of a HTC Legend and a pretty old laptop with Ubuntu Linux installed.

    Is there any app that lets me control volume etc. on my computer via wifi?

    Best regards,
    Mathias

    I know there is a vnc application that is said to support linux:

    android-vnc-viewer - Cyrket

    (You would need to setup a vncserver, which you should probably turn to linux support if you want to figure out.)

    Thanks for the quick answer!

    One stupid question, maybe: What to I do with the "barcode" install it on my phone? Do I take a picture of it? With what app?

    Thanks :)
