Raspberry Pi 4 B – Kali Linux using Micro-HDMI to VGA Adapter

Raspberry Pi

Had a little bit of trouble with this Micro-HDMI to VGA Adapter when trying to use it with Kali Linux, the Raspberry Pi would appear to boot up, but no picture was displayed.

The solution was pretty straightforward, from another machine I opened the config.txt file and uncommented the following lines:

framebuffer_width=1080
framebuffer_height=720 
hdmi_force_hotplug=1 

The saved the file and rebooted, the Raspberry PI now booted up and showed a picture as expected. You can adjust the width and height to fit your desired monitor resolution.
