1. How do I connect from a device on the same network?

For ssh, we use port 2022. So, you can use an ssh client from another device on the same network by connecting to your_phones_ip:2022 .

For vnc, we use display :51. So, you can use a vnc client from another device on the same network by connecting you your_phones_ip and specifying the display is :51 or the port is 5951 (depending on what your client needs).

2. How do I get Firefox working?

Installing Firefox on Debian

For Debian, you can just click the Firefox icon on the apps page. Or you can do the following manually:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install firefox-esr
firefox-esr &

Installing Firefox on Ubuntu

For Ubuntu you can do the following (sorry it is a little more involved):

sudo apt update
sudo apt install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install firefox-esr
firefox-esr &

For other distros, please look online, possibly specifically on the Firefox website for how to install firefox-esr from packages (not snap).

3. How do I install a desktop environment?

The easy way

For Debian, you can just click the xfce or lxde app icons and it will be setup for you.

The hard way

For Debian or otherwise, xfce or lxde should install and work properly. Ideally, this would be really easy, like sudo apt update && sudo apt install xfce4 (for Ubuntu), but sometimes issues pop up that require more work on your behalf. In the future we will make this easy for all distros we support. For now, if you are getting an error about udisks2 please see this issue: https://github.com/CypherpunkArmory/UserLAnd/issues/1072

You can’t perform that action at this time.
