Which Linux installer did you download from Google
Depending on the Linux flavour you have installed, you may have two alternatives for installing OpenCPN in your linux chroot environment
. You can try using an .rpm or .deb package, or compile and install OpenCPN from source. Since you are new to linux installing a package should be your first choice.
I recommend you use Linux Deploy to install Debian Wheezy since there is an OpenCPN package that should work.
Complete instructions are here: opencpn.org/ocpn/node/193
Regarding the 'tiny' nature of anything displaying in linux, this is on account of the Experia's high resolution. If you use bVNC Free from Google
Play, pinch and zoom should help to overcome the 'tiny' issue and at any resolution on any device avoid inadvertently deleting a route
or other important work.
Note the reference in the instructions to the forum where recent discussion and assistance is available.

I will be happy to provide the steps for both.
However, I don't know much about android or Linux so I don't know which version of Linux got installed or where the install is in the tablet.
I can see the Linux desktop using a vnc viewer but everything looks so small I am sure there is something I did wrong ...
I will live it at that and wait to see if there are other Xperia users interested in rooting or sharing their installs.
The objective is to install OpenCPN in my tablet.
Need to know the opencpn Linux version to install.
Thanks for the help
