I tried Linux on Android but it gives invalid argument mounting the loop device. Linux Deploy has an option to not use a loop device and install to a folder I think. Not positive. Try Advanced Linux Installer. That might work. It costs but it's way better than the free version. Try Standard Linux Installer first if you like.

Could you please add some note on how you managed to install?

I am trying with several options, but always get stuck on a "dd: permission denied" creating the volume

I'll try to provide that info. What you're seeing likely means where it's trying to write isn't allowed. Try changing the install location to somewhere safe like /data/kali or something. Also I just found out the S5 won't do ext2 so if you're trying to do a loop device use ext4 if possible. Sorry I don't have more info at the moment.

I am having the same issue. What SU app are you using? I am using SuperSU, I read that SuperSU might be the problem but I do not know the conditions on how to switch SU apps. Hopefully we can find a solution.

Just got running.

use a terminal emulator as root
cd /data/data/ru.meefik.linuxdeploy/linux/bin
rm sh chroot
ln -s /system/bin/mksh sh
ln -s /system/xbin/busybox chroot

make sure your file location is on your sd card
change image size to appropriate size.
also change to ext4 file system
