What's the simplest FOSS tool for me to remote controll my dad's PC for tech support? Both are running Ubuntu 18.10, and he has to set up his end himself.

ssh? :)

But a vnc server seems like it should not be too difficult to set up. Vino seems to be the default, and well integrated with the ubuntu desktop according to their wiki: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNC/Servers

As @harald says, #ssh is the standard tool for all remote admin. Accept no substitutes. 😜
