The Splashtop Linux Streamer officially supports Ubuntu versions 16.04 and 18.04. You may also try it with other Linux distributions that are not currently supported. After installation is complete, be sure to launch the Splashtop Streamer (afterwards, the streamer will auto-launch whenever the computer is turned on).
