Orange Pi Lite is a mini PCs cards that usually used remotely without screen (neither keyboard nor mouse). In some cases, or if you start on Linux, you would like with a graphical access to the Linux desktop. In this tutorial we will learn how to install and configure a Virtual Network Computing (VNC) server on the Armbian distribution that is very well suited to Orange Pi Lite and accessed by RDP from Windows 7.

Preparing the TightVNC server

TightVNC (official project page) is a lightweight VNC server that runs on all Linux distributions as well as on Windows. Before installing it, it is best to update the system.

sudo apt-get update

Wait and when it finished, just install the TightVNC.

sudo apt-get install tightvncserver

Preparing the VNC user

It is possible to connect to your Orange Pi or Raspberry Pi with your usual user but for security, it is better to add a dedicated user to this situation.

Change user to root (if not).

su –

Add a new user to the system with the adduser command and answer questions (password, optional questions).

adduser vnc

Adding user `vnc’ …

Adding new group `vnc’ (1001) …

Adding new user `vnc’ (1001) with group `vnc’ …

Creating home directory `/home/vnc’ …

Copying files from `/etc/skel’ …

Enter new UNIX password:

Retype new UNIX password:

passwd: password updated successfully

Changing the user information for vnc

Enter the new value, or press ENTER for the default

Full Name []: VNCuser

Room Number []:

Work Phone []:

Home Phone []:

Other []:

Is the information correct? [Y/n] Y

This user is given the right to use the sudo command (if you want to install new packages remotely).

gpasswd -a vnc sudo

Adding user vnc to group sudo

Start the VNC

Change user

su – vnc

Now we start the VNC server on port 1. On first launch, you will have to specify the password necessary to authenticate you from a client.

vncserver :1

You will require a password to access your desktops.



Would you like to enter a view-only password (y/n)? n

xauth: file /home/vnc/.Xauthority does not exist

New ‘X’ desktop is orangepilite:1

Creating default startup script /home/vnc/.vnc/xstartup

Starting applications specified in /home/vnc/.vnc/xstartup

Log file is /home/vnc/.vnc/orangepilite:1.log

Preparing XRDP

sudo apt-get install xrdp

Now we are able to login on Armbian using the remote desktop. Start the remote desktop client entering the Orange Pi Lite

Execute the login with the user and password created above, vnc
