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

  1. I get an error
    cp: missing destination file operand after 'katoolin/katoolin.py/usr/bin/katoolin'

  2. I had the same error. I went to another site, and it mentioned that repository needs to be universal.

    $] sudo add-apt-repository universe

    The site also mentioned that you have to make the file executable.

    $] sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/katoolin

    For me to make this work:
    $] sudo apt update
    $] sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev
    $] sudo apt install git
    $] git clone https://github.com/LionSec/katoolin.git

    added: $] sudo add-apt-repository universe

    $] sudo cp katoolin/katoolin.py /usr/bin/katoolin

    added: $] sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/katoolin

    $] sudo katoolin


    The site also has a decent presentation of how to navigate once you are in Katoolin.

    I hope that helps.

  3. The steps are supposed to be like the following, that's why you got an error.
    $] sudo apt update
    $] sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev
    $] sudo apt install git
    $] git clone https://github.com/LionSec/katoolin.git
    $] sudo cp katoolin/katoolin.py /usr/bin/katoolin
    $] chmod +x /usr/bin/katoolin
    $] sudo katoolin
