    you could have provided a screenshot of just the error and not the entire screen, or better yet, just provided the text – schroeder May 20 '17 at 16:23
  • I'm confused: you run the browser in VNC viewer? What browser would run in VNC? – schroeder May 20 '17 at 16:26
  • Then is it possible to install a browser in it? – Agniva Dutta May 21 '17 at 5:29
  • You need to describe your environment. – schroeder May 21 '17 at 6:47

Yes, using Linux Deploy on Android you have a lot of images to install. Kali is one of them. It installs also a SSH server and a VNC server to connect to your Linux.

In first instance you should update your system as normal using apt update && apt dist-upgrade and will see if error disappear. You can also check the file of your error. The error is saying that file has a bad "structure". Usually, files with ".desktop" extension are shortcuts and they should have this structure (I'll put an example of one of my desktop shortcuts):

[Desktop Entry]
Exec=sh -c "sqlninja;${SHELL:-bash}"

Check it to know if your shortcut has the right structure or complete it if is not ok. You can delete it also if you are not using it and try to create it again.

A firefox (if it is your browser) shortcut has a little bit more complicated structure because of languages:

[Desktop Entry]

If you don't have Firefox installed you can install a it using apt (apt install firefox).
