I'm trying to access Linux Deploy, Kali Linux via a VNC Client on my Android phone. I could access it, but I get a blank screen.

How to fix it?

Here is what to do:

  1. Use Mobile SSH or Termux to get to a virtual terminal

  2. While in the terminal, install xrdp

    sudo apt-get install xrdp
  3. Use JuiceSSH on your Android to get graphical screen access

  • When I use sudo I get "No command 'sudo' found, did you mean: Command 'sum' from package 'coreutils' ..." But when I enter, apt-get install xrdp I get "E: Unable to locate package xrdp"

  • Something is wrong with the setup. sudo is built-in like whoami, and if you get an error when you put in apt-get install xrdp then there is likely something wrong with your repository files. btw, If you can run apt-get install xrdp then you don't need the sudo command. You're logged in as root. No problem there. But it should be able to find xrdp. I have done this a dozen times and it always works. Can you consider a clean install? If you do, then you will still want to install xrdp and use Juice to access the GUI from Android.
