How to install vmware workstation inside ubuntu distro?
Yes, but first problem is I don't have access to sdcard. File manager from ubuntu says "couldn't enter folder sdcard" and external_sd folder doesn't contain any files and that you will not find in any tutorial whyThis looks like a perfect way.
tried to get the complete Linux installer running but it crashes when I want to start a linux
I'm running cm 13 with internal cm root on super Su and I have the linux image on sd card

I've just started to root out my One and tried out LinuxOnAndroid, which, after a few days of google-ing and trying is working pretty well.
I need linux on the mobile only to be able to see my Linux desktops on PCs and Clusters to check my simualtions. All the distros and desktops I've tried, which have no errors in package manager and/or supporting X2go by default are showing empty windows for the client - really regardless the distro or desktop environment. I've connected thru SSH to my linux PC at work and I've started X2go client from that machine and it appeares without any prob.....
Any clues about the reason? For me it should be some display driver or session problem, but everything else is fine (except Firefox, which is not getting internet... but thats stg. else & not a primary problem).
I have limited knowledge about Linux (I know some stuffs, but I'm not a developer). Thanks in advance!
I recently found a neat trick to get Linux on android to work on more devices. I wonder if its common knowledge and that's why it hasn't been mentioned before? It's simple.
Lol, that's an old post... It's a bit fuzzy ,but I recall I was having trouble running Linux on Android because it was looking for a file in the busybox directory that wasn't there. For some reason the file it looks for can be found in the /data/data/com.zpwebsites.linuxonandroid/files/busybox dir.Would you mind sharing the trick?
hi @zacthespack , i have a problem with Ubuntu small and my new Meizu pro 5 android 5.1,
Error: image file not found! ( sdcard/Ubuntu/Ubuntu.img)
can you help me please?
I managed to get SELinux work on Backtrack 5. This should now fix this VNC grey screen and some other problems on SELinux enabled kernels (Such as TouchWiz).
Anyways, you can get my modified Backtrack 5 v10 IMG HERE.
If you get this error on VNC, make sure that your SELinux status is Permissive, not Enforcing. You can switch to Permissive mode using the following command:
Or you can edit your init.rc file for it to be set on each boot.Code:
Use Linux deploy or give it a tryI really love this project but I stuck so long time with this trouble. I read all of the post in this thread, I see someone have same trouble with me, but there still no clear solution.
Trouble is something error like " ld.so: object 'libsigchain.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded " when I hit launch in complete Linux installer app.
And when I use vnc to created a desktop, it blank with the mouse in middle.
My device is galaxy note 3, running cyanogenmod 13 with using SD card as internal storage.
I try to run Ubuntu 12.04 full
I surely purchase this amazing app but I should make sure it can run at my device first. Thanks

The ssh daemon is not installed by default so this is why you get the error. As zacthespack said, it would not affect the "boot" process.
@zacthespack, on the whole question of sshd, it might be better to actually install the openssh-server but in the initial init.sh ask the user whether they want to enable sshd and save this setting to bootdefaults.txt.
As it is, with sshd not even installed but the init.sh trying to start it simply throws up an un-necessary error which makes people think something is broken.
I definitely think starting sshd without the user explicitly choosing to is a bad idea, but the present situation is not ideal either.
Probably the best overall solution is to include a preferences section in your App where the user can choose such things as their resolution, to run sshd or not, etc.
I suggest ARM porting Puppy linux or some other other really light distro to gain maximum performace out of mobile device.
Also there ultra-light desktops . It seems that the best would be Ratpoison or Awesome. These are easy to incorporate into now available port of Ubuntu for android.
These should together provide fast and small display suitable linux env. for your mobile device!
see ya round!
