I want to turn my phone into a Linux Desktop when I connect it to an external display but not using screen mirroring (I.e., the external screen is running while phone screen is turned off).
There is something similar to my needs called "Samsung Dex" but I don't have it on my phone.
I found steps to install Linux Distro & open graphical desktop using VNC but never found a way to open it on the external display.
I also found Drivedroid but I don't want neither to run root (hence erase data and lose phone warranty) nor to use a computer as a device resource (CPU, Ram, GPU...).
All googling lead to "turn android to second screen" no matter how I rephrase it.
All I am asking for is keywords to search for.
Keywords that I used to search for:
- Ubuntu for Android: just gives me links to Ubuntu touch; not my question.
- Docking android: gave me some results for devices that I can buy (like nex book that uses phone or RPI to run a semi-laptop).
- Android as Linux Desktop: results for "use android as second monitor"
