I'll let this one slide because it is a correct answer, but you'd get more upvotes if you explained how the command works.

comment some help with this command, not sure what it does?
Not quite irreversible, but you'd either need good backups or a bit of help from the NSA for data recovery.

comment Why, still in modern GUI-based Linux distros, is it common to use the command line?
@LesterBonker The assertion that a CLI is just an emulated console used on graphics hardware is factually untrue for most unices. And in fact, when I'm remote administering my servers I'm much more likely to use ssh than to fire up an entire remote desktop.

comment installing popcorn-time.se on linux kali 2.0
Install a real desktop-purpose distribution. any desktop-purpose distribution. Remember, just because you can use a surgical scalpel or a chainsaw to cut meat doesn't mean that either of them are really the best idea to put next to your plate at dinner.

Take a good look at all the utter noob questions tagged kali-linux on this site, far too many of which boil down to "I'm trying to use a specialized penetration testing tool as a desktop OS and it doesn't work right, help!" and you might get an inkling.

To wit, in order to, as you call it -- and the fact that that's what you call it tells me you don't have the vaguest clue what you're doing -- "./configure && make && make install", you'd have to install and set up a full compiler and build suite on a system that lacks both of those and does not have package management capabilities to easily install them. There's a chicken and egg problem there and you don't have the ability to work your way through them or we wouldn't be having this discussion.

Yes there is, and that way boils down to "turn your Kali Linux install into something vaguely resembling an actual desktop system - as envisioned by H.P. Lovecraft and drawn by Picasso." It's technically possible much in the same way it's technically possible to build a bike out of corroded sheet iron, duct tape and rubber tree sap, but anyone sane will tell you to just get an actual bike instead.

Repeat after me: "Kali Linux Is A Penetration Testing Tool, Not Suitable For Actual Desktop Use"

The exact output, not a summary. If anything, your question is now even more uninformative than it was before.

comment LSB: Raise network interface hang
Not enough information. How is the network interface configured? That's an installation ISO, not an independently functioning system.

First of all, for the love of $DEITY edit your original question, get rid of the full ls output and replace it with the output of ls -lsa /usr/sbin/iptables , which iptables, and echo $PATH. We really don't need the full directory output.

First off, check if it's really there and not just a busted symlink: ls -lsa /usr/sbin/iptables

And elaborate. Because just the output of ls isn't a question.

comment Where the term “tarball” comes from?
It rolls easier off the tongue than "tar archive" -- and unix geeks would detest the latter on general principle for being redundant as tar stands for Tape ARchive...

comment When in debian 8.1 why is the super user run with su not sudo?
Most common occurrence of a linux/unix install without sudo is on embedded systems where disk space is at an absolute premium.
