Edge2 Pro Headless VNC?

Which system do you use? Android, Ubuntu, OOWOW or others?

Khadas official Ubuntu

Can anyone point me in the direction of steps to set an Edge2 Pro up for headless VNC? After many hours, I’ve managed to get VNC working with Screens as a VNC client, but only when the Edge2 Pro is plugged into a monitor, which falls short of my intended set-up. Would really appreciate some advice. Thanks in advance.


@Electr1 will help you then.

You can follow my steps to get headless RDP working on Edge2.

You need to install Allow Locked Remote Desktop - GNOME Shell Extensions
VNC does not allow this setup, only RDP will work.

You can install this extension by yourself by any method, I will prescribe a way using flatpak app.

$ sudo apt install flatpak
$ flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://dl.flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
$ flatpak install com.mattjakeman.ExtensionManager

With the extensions app installed, you can easily add the extension

With the extension installed, you may proceed with the rest of the setup:

Install xrdp

$ sudo apt install xrdp

Configure the remote desktop from settings


Now simply reboot your device and use the RDP client of your choice.



Many thanks! Much appreciated.
