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