If you are looking for an Android application that allows to send all notifications you receive on your mobile phone to your computer, I recommend that you install Remote Notifier. When your mobile phone is not beside you, you will still be aware of received SMS/MMS on your computer, even alerts are sent when your mobile phone battery is running low. Remote Notifier uses either Bluetooth or a WiFi network in order to run.

Remote Notifier Installation

Let's first install android-notifier-desktop on your Linux distribution:
