It would seem that
TightVNC isn't part of this image of Kali Linux.
TigerVNC is a fork that is supported by the standard Kali Linux repositories.
I managed to figure out a pretty good alternative to
TigerVNC. Below is my expanded solution.
I would recommend using
x11vnc as it provides the actual desktop experience rather than a virtual one.
x11vnc enter the following command:
apt-get update && apt-get install -y x11vnc
If you experience that the
framebuffer size is too small, then to change it do the following:
/boot/config.txt and open it using
(Note: If the file
/boot/config.txt does not exist, safely power-off the Pi using the command,
poweroff and take the Micro-SD card out and plug it into a laptop or desktop computer. When the Micro-SD card mounts, open it. The
config.txt file should be on the root of the mounted Micro-SD card).
- uncomment the following text in
- Save and exit the file. Then, reboot the Pi and start
x11vnc by using the following command to push it into a background process:
x11vnc -usepw -reopen -bg -forever &
If you would like to start
x11vnc at boot, add the following to a file called
[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Name=x11vnc Exec=x11vnc -usepw -reopen -bg -forever & Comment=Starts an x11vnc server on port kali:5900
~/.config/autostart does not exist, create the
autostart directory by issuing the following command:
