I would like to install RealVNC on Ubuntu Mate as it would have installed on Raspbian Jessie.

These answers are correct but incomplete. To get the native Raspbian experience, e.g. with a panel icon for the service that expands into an information window, you must also manually enable the service after installing.

  1. Download the server .deb package from https://www.realvnc.com/en/download/vnc/raspberrypi/
  2. Install using sudo dpkg -i <path/to/file> or by double-clicking to open with gdebi
  3. From the command line, enable the correct service:
    • To access local session, use Service mode: sudo systemctl enable vncserver-x11-serviced.service
    • To access a virtual session, use Virtual mode: sudo systemctl enable vncserver-virtuald.service
  4. Reboot or manually start the service using sudo systemctl start <service>

You will have to use a command line because there is no on/off switch for VNC in the Ubuntu MATE version of raspi-config (yet).

Through RealVNC packages are form the Debian repo, i suggest I'd suggest you install gdebi and then navigate it to the package for installation. Or you can use

Desktop Sharing (which is from the Software Center)

or

TightVNC (alternative)

You can get the deb packages from here: https://www.realvnc.com/en/download/vnc/raspberrypi/

Extract the deb files (there's one for the server and viewer) from the downloaded tar.gz and install with:

sudo dpkg --install <deb_filename>

There's not guarantee it'll work though, since RealVNC only officially support Raspbian.
