      Hello Re4son,
      was checking the different tools on the new iso and it seems that some tools are not running at all ie. gqrx and gnuradio.
      Also tried to install several other tools like
      bleah https://github.com/evilsocket/bleah
      bluepy https://github.com/IanHarvey/bluepy
      salamandra https://github.com/eldraco/Salamandra
      routersploit https://github.com/threat9/routersploit
      or even zenmap
      to name a few and always got errors which tried to fix but continued getting errors. Also tried to install the full version of kali but it wouldn’t let me.

      Thank you in advance.

      Hi alpha,

      I’ll look into it. Which image are you using, gnome or KDE?
      I’m currently running KDE and there seem to be an unresolved python dependency causing problems with some of the tools but others like zenmap work well. I also don’t have any problems with installing kali-linux-full.
      What error message do you get when trying to go full?

      Many thanks,
      Re4son

      Hi Re4son,
      using the Gnome version for now. Error I get while trying to install kali-linux-full is “E: Unable to locate package kali-linux-full”. Thought that if I went for the full version some of the problems might go away. Is it a matter of editing the sources.list? Obviously not all the tools are needed it on this little fella, but solving this might solve most of the issues.

      Thank you,
      Alpha

      Weird, seems to be working on my end.
      I’ve just done a new install using the “kali-linux-pocket-20180513.iso” and installed “kali-linux-full” without any problems.
      Can you run “apt update” ok?
      There are a couple of debian bugs that are making you life difficult:

      – Zenmap works
      – gnuradio & gqrx – debian bug; this hack works for me:

      ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libvolk.so.1.3.1 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libvolk.so.1.3

      I’ll look into the others too.

      Hope that helps for now,
      Re4son

      Hello,

      your magic worked for the gnu-radio and gqrx! Thank you.Now as for the
      apt update return is

      apt update
      Reading package lists... Done
      Building dependency tree       
      Reading state information... Done
      All packages are up to date.

      So I thought ok let’s check zenmap then

      apt-get install zenmap
      Reading package lists... Done
      Building dependency tree       
      Reading state information... Done
      Package zenmap is not available, but is referred to by another package.
      This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
      is only available from another source
      However the following packages replace it:
        ndiff
      
      E: Package 'zenmap' has no installation candidate

      One last time to test installing full version

      apt-get install kali-linux-full
      Reading package lists... Done
      Building dependency tree       
      Reading state information... Done
      E: Unable to locate package kali-linux-full

      which implements tha the source.list need to be edited

      Thank you for your quick reply Re4son,

      Hm, bizarre :-8
      Do you get any listings when you run “apt-cache search kali-linux”?
      What if you hard-code a different mirror in your sources.list?

      So when I input “apt-cache search kali-linux” orint is

      apt-cache search kali-linux
      kali-linux-wireless - Kali Linux wireless tools
      kali-linux - Kali Linux base system
      kali-linux-top10 - Kali Linux Top 10 tools
      kali-linux-sdr - Kali Linux SDR tools

      Should probably try a different mirror in the sources.list as you say. Will let you know!

      Thank you!

      I’d try this mirror:

      http://kali.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/kali

      works for me

      Just added deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free

      in the sources.list and seems to work fine for now. Originally was

      # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 2018.2 _Kali-rolling_ - Official Snapshot amd64 L$
      
      #deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 2018.2 _Kali-rolling_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LI$
      
      # This system was installed using small removable media
      # (e.g. netinst, live or single CD). The matching "deb cdrom"
      # entries were disabled at the end of the installation process.
      # For information about how to configure apt package sources,
      # see the sources.list(5) manual.

      Will keep you updated!

      Yeap everything works great just by fixing the sources.list!

      Thank you Re4son!

      Glad it’s working.
      I’m a bit concerned about the incorrect sources.list though. Which image did you use?

    • #13225

      I used the the Gnome edition.

      Also just found out that the bluetooth is not working

    • #13242
      Re4son
      Keymaster

      Bluetooth is disabled by default. Just run:

      sudo systemctl enable bluetooth && \
      sudo systemctl start bluetooth

      Hope that helps,

      same issue here, no mirror on last KDE image

    • #13326

      Here’s another thing not working on KDE is Dolphin. it launches and crashes directly. cant even see the window.

      what should I give to troubleshoot the issue?

    • #13327
      Re4son
      Keymaster

      I’ll look into the lost mirror entry in the sources list.

      Dolphin doesn’t work for root. Was a design decision by the developers.:
      https://cgit.kde.org/dolphin.git/commit/?id=0bdd8e0b0516555c6233fdc7901e9b417cf89

      You can use Konquerer instead.
