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 https://github.com/LionSec/katoolin.git
$] sudo cp katoolin/katoolin.py /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.

Once everything is installed, This is how the start menu of Linux Mint looks like

  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
