If you look at the indicated repository: http://ppa.launchpad.net/obsproject/obs-studio/ubuntu/dists/ you cannot find there the ubuntu version of the name: groovy. I am not an ubuntu expert, but try to find the correct version name of ubuntu, on which the kali is based on. Then you can edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file.

Changing the user name does not transfer all your GUI settings. Maybe copy the hidden files and directories over from the previous home directory, if there is one. Kali doesn't work like a typical desktop distro. Many of the defaults are not expected by a typical user. I don't use Kali, but I did use backtrack, which Kali came from.

l faced the same problem and the cause was that l had chosen the wrong type of operating system under the mono offical site. Kali Linux is a Debian based Linux Distribution so here is a quick way to solve it sudo apt install apt-transport-https dirmngr gnupg ca certificates sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys ...

Bridged adaptors don't send your virtual machine all traffic. They intercept traffic destined for your VM and re-route it. https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html#network_bridged Oracle VM VirtualBox uses a device driver on your host system that filters data from your physical network adapter. This driver is therefore called a net filter driver. This ...

Changing the font size in their default terminal just doesn't seem to work, no matter what I've tried. Here's my workaround: sudo apt install xfce4-terminal Once it's installed, go to "Settings" -> "Keyboard" -> "Application Shortcuts", and change it so that in future when you hit Ctrl+Alt+T it defaults to the new, easier ...

On Kali Linux, there is an option to install aircrack using the following command: 'sudo apt install aircrack-ng', and it works now because the manual pages are showing when the command 'man aircrack-n' is executed in root mode. I would really appreciate if anyone could confirm my answer. Thank you.

Run apt autoclean: this will remove archives you no longer need. If that’s not sufficient, apt clean will remove all the archives; if necessary, they will be downloaded again in the future.

Try installing the packages missed or download them from official repositories websites, as like: libc6 - for Debian (derivative systems) and install it with gdebi I remember I solved some similar problem with my Bunsenslabs distro. Add more details, information or any progress with your one. I invite you to read this: How to create a Minimal, Complete, and ...

I fixed it after I clean the apt manager by running: apt-get clean && apt-get purge && apt autoremove I think the apt autoremove did the job. After that I run: apt-get update and it seems to be fixed.

When you run a virtual machine, your guest OS (kali) does not see your physical hardware. Instead it only sees virtual hardware as defined by your hypervisor (virtualbox). In terms of network cards, you're default settings in virtual box are to have a single NAT device. This means there is a virtual network between your guest (virtual machine) and your ...

If there is one, verify that the hardware switch for the Wi-Fi adapter on your laptop is set to the on position. Check which driver Kali is trying to use with your adapter, the correct one is the RTW88 driver. It seems to be a common problem surrounding the RTL8822CE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter where the incorrect driver is loaded (if the wrong ...

Kali is neither Ubuntu nor Debian. I appreciate that Kali could be classed as a derivative, so I'll warn against you trying to continue along this path; if you try and install non-Kali packages you will likely break your Kali distribution. This quote comes from Kali's own documentation: […] adding other operating system’s repositories into Kali (such as ...

This page also contains instructions for older Kali Linux versions.

It seems that filesystem support (for example your disk could be formatted using NTFS or exFAT) is missing from the live Kali system. I think the needed packages for support can be installed, but will not remain after reboot, due to live system. Can you send the result of sudo lsblk -o name,fstype,size,mountpoint,model,vendor Apparently the article you ...

Hm... maybe you need to specify the filesystem type manually? with mount -t <filesystem-type> <block-device> <mount-point>. Tell me if it works. Regards. P.S: If it doesn't please be more detailed (attach screenshot next time) so we can try to help you.

This is a feature of Kali linux, not a bug. If you would like to keep things saved, the keyword you are looking for is "persistence". Here is Kali's official guide for adding persistence to a USB stick. https://www.kali.org/docs/usb/kali-linux-live-usb-persistence/

You cannot create files on the same media you use to boot up from. No persistence. You need to create it in other drive.

For those who did not have any success with the above answers After experimenting a bit I think I understood the issue. There is some updated package that is causing issues with kex. Reinstall Kali, do NOT dist-upgrade, and directly do an apt update and apt install kali-win-kex and it will work just fine. Again, do not update the kali wsl2 system.

Edit the postinst for libc6 vi /var/lib/dpkg/info/libc6\:amd64.postinst and comment out the line set -e Rerun the fix-broken apt-get --fix-broken install

I suggest running the following: sudo apt update sudo apt --fix-broken install sudo apt upgrade sudo apt dist-upgrade Then repeat until the errors are all gone or repeat reliably. That usually solves normal dist-upgrade problems (which I am assuming is what you were doing). If that doesn't work, then there's probably an issue with your sources. In that ...

1 quick question: When you connect ANY USB device to your VM is it still available for your host machine? The answer is NO. The same as your wireless adapter. You cannot have the same device connected to 2 different machines, even if it's a VM it's another whole different machine.

Open gnome-tweak-tool (if you can't get to it from the gnome lens, use ALT+F2 and type gnome-tweaks). Under the "Extensions" tab, deselect extensions you think may contribute to this Test that the issue has gone away Re-enable extensions one-by-one until you have isolated the problem.

Your problem is that kali is still logged in. If you are logged into your desktop environment (e.g. gnome/kde) as kali, then that user will own some of the graphical processes. kali must not be logged into any graphical sessions. If you are in a TTY, then I'm guessing you have a situation like this: kali ~ $ su root root ~ # usermod -l newname kali usermod: ...

The following solution worked for me. Step1: Start Powershell or Command Prompt in Administrator Mode. Step2: type wsl (if kali-linux is you default distro) or just type bash, press enter. Step3: type cd or cd ~, press enter. Step4: type kex, press enter. InshAllah it will work fine.

Choosing to use the whole disk while installing Kali will erase everything on the disk and install itself. It'll of course install a bootloader, GRUB.
