Installing Kali Linux Tools in Ubuntu or Linux Mint

Kali linux is a debian based and its not easy to configure it on a typical PC. If the machine is UEFI based, then Kali is tough to customize.

So what is the alternative....? Here is the answer: Katoolin

Its the name of the package system for installing the entire kali linux tools (Penetration Testing) in Ubuntu or Debian based system.

Here I am trying to install inside my Linux Mint

OS Used: Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya
Prequisites: Python 2.7
Always perform these steps after the installation of ubuntu or Linux Mint

$] sudo apt update
$] sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev
$] sudo apt install git
$] git clone
$] sudo cp katoolin/ /usr/bin/katoolin
$] sudo katoolin

This will give various options as shown below
 In the above pic. Select 2 to View categories and you will get the screen as shown in the next image.
Select "0" to install all the applications.

This will install 1.3G to download and 3.5 GB space will be…

Decision Making and Looping

C supports Decision Making and Looping (Interations)
In decision Making,
if, if-else, if- else if – else, switch – case is used.
//These statements are executed only if the condition is true or 1
if – else
//These statements are executed only if the condition is true or 1
//these statement are executed only if the condition is false or 0
(in the above example, there is no else part means that for some situation, there may not be a need for else part)
if – else if – else
if(condition 1)
//These statements are executed if the condition 1 is true or 1
else if (condition 2)
//These statements are executed if the condition 2 is true or 1
//These statements are executed neither condition 1 nor condition 2 are true
// if all the conditions fails, then this statement will execute
Switch Case
switch (expression)
case 1: statement 1;
case 2: statement 2;
case 3: statement 3;
default: statement d;
//Statement n;
The switch case works similar like a multiple if else if statement.
Assume if the expression takes 3 as the value and the statement 3 will be executed and next there is a break statement, so the control comes to statement n and it ill be printed.
so when case 3: is success, then
statement 3;
statement n;
will be printed
  • while()
  • do .. while();
  • for()
while ()
//statement 1
statement 1 will keep on execution till the condition becomes false
so this loop is called as entry controlled loop
do while()
//Statement 1
in this, whether the condition is true or false, first time the loop will execute and only then it will check for validity of the condition.
so this loop is called as exit controlled loop
for loop
for (initialization: condition; increment/decrement)
More details about the looping will be in subsequent posts.
