I’ll look into it.
Thanks for raising it here too, I’m not monitoring the github issues very well.
I’ll incorporate the new settings into my config.
Good to hear.
Would appreciate it if you could send the following files to re4son [at] re4son-kernel.com:
My bad, sorry. I forgot to give you this link:
I meant to follow these steps. That’ll make sure that the screen is ok.
Let’s make sure that the hardware is ok and works with the original drivers and setup. Once we got that working we can baseline the kali setup against that.
Just read your problems with win32disk.
Download the img.xz and then unzip it first using 7zip. That will create the img you can use with win32disk.
In Linux you can use the “write-sdcard” & “read-sdcard” scripts I’ve included in the kernel package
First make sure you have this one:
Not that one:
this image:Sorry, they don’t provide images anymore 😉
Best to follow these steps to the letter.
If that doesn’t work you can contact Adafruit for a replacement and if that works we can try to figure out what’s wrong with my code.
Do you have a spare sd card you could use to test the image provided by Adafruit?
Good idea – I’ll work on it
You could clone the Sticky Fingers menu to /opt/Kali-Pi it would then be unaffected by the user name.
All you then have to do is add the autostart of “menu” to .profile
I was thinking about it but I haven’t made up my mind yet.
First I’d try to ssh into the Pi and edit
Play around with these two options:
Option “SwapAxes” “1”
Option “InvertY” “1”
That should get you there.
If that doesn’t work you should delete the file, reboot, and run:
apt install xinput-calibrator
Then connect your keyboard, switch to a console login, login, and run:
Type the output into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-calibration.conf.
I’d appreciate it if you could post the output here too.
No need. Just move the Kali-Pi directory into the new user’s home directory and edit the .profile to start “menu”. Just copy it across from user pi.
You also have to adjust the MENUDIR variable in menu.
Alternatively you could clone “https://github.com/Re4son/Kali-Pi”.
That’s been updated to the new version which will handle that automatically.
It’s a new version of nexmon. It doesn’t support the old school up/down anymore.
For your autologin: best to use my new kalipi-config from now on:
Thanks for testing the changes.
I have incorporated them into the new Sticky Fingers menu v3.0.
It’s about to go live. No big changes, except this one and support for HDMI screens and bigger sizes.
Don’t use airmon-ng, use mon0up and mon0down. They come with my kernel package.
I did a quick scan and renaming shouldn’t be a problem at all.
I am about to release a new version of the Sticky Fingers menu and I’ll include a variable that defines the username.
Changing the following lines after renaming the user should do the trick:
Menus/menu-3.py:103: kalipi.run_cmd(“/usr/bin/sudo -u pi screen -R -S msf msfconsole”)
Menus/menu-3.py:137: kalipi.run_cmd(“/usr/bin/sudo -u pi screen -R -S kismet /usr/bin/kismet”)
Menus/kismet/kismet.service:8:ExecStart=/usr/bin/sudo -u pi /usr/local/bin/kismet –silent –daemonize –homedir /home/pi/Kali-Pi/Menus/kismet
Menus/menu-1.py:66: ## kalipi.run_cmd(“/usr/bin/sudo -u pi FRAMEBUFFER=/dev/fb1 startx”)
Menus/menu-1.py:77: ## kalipi.run_cmd(“/usr/bin/sudo -u pi FRAMEBUFFER=/dev/fb0 startx”)
Menus/menu-1.py:115: kalipi.run_cmd(“/usr/bin/sudo -u pi screen -R -S term”)
Would you mind giving that a try?
Let me look into that. I might be able to quickly add a variable you can set
Which Pi do you have?
The link to posted leads to the display for the Pi 1
No probs. Sticky Fingers or Stock Kali?
Do you have a keyboard and mouse handy?
That odd but not a problems.
I have a few of those and the calibration if spot on with all of them.
The “lcd_rotate=2″ is not for TFT screens but for the original PI 7” display – for all the others we have to re-calibrate.
You can’t see any files in /boot because it’s not mounted by default – just type “mount /boot” and you’ll be all set.
First off though, which image did you use and are you booting into cli or gui?
The 28c config is designed for both the 1983 and the 2423. I’ve just tested the latest image with each of them and it works like a charm for me.
Have you tried the image provided by adafruit to see if the hw is ok?
There is usually ample warning when the pi overheats. It displays a little thermometer icon in the top right hand corner of your screen.
I’d try running your setup with an external power supply. I’ve had a few reboots over the years and they’ve all been caused by a battery or power supply that wasn’t up to the job.
Hope that helps and please let us know how you go,
Glad it’s working
Slowing it down a notch should do the trick.
Just mount “/boot” and edit “/boot/config.txt”.
I am running a few of those babies and they all work with either of these settings.
Please let me know how you go.
Bluetooth is disabled by default. Just run:
sudo systemctl enable bluetooth && \ sudo systemctl start bluetooth
Hope that helps,
1) Sticky Fingers is updated via “apt upgrade”. Nothing more to do.
The entire distro consists of stock kali packages with special configurations, custom kernel, Sticky Fingers gui and some add-on programs that shouldn’t need upgrades.
The kernel is not upgraded via “apt upgrade”. You can download and install a new kernel image from this site if you want to have the latest and greates.
Every now and then I update the Sticky Fingers menu. There shouldn’t be a reason to update it but if I push an update you are interested in you can just do a “git pull” in “/home/pi/Kali-Pi”
2)Just rename the user but don’t rename the home directory or you would have to adjust the Sticky Fingers configuration.
Best to take a backup of your sd card before doing those changes.
Hope that helps,
