I was trying to install katoolin to get all the Kali linux tools in Ubuntu 17.10. I have seen many tutorials describing same method, and I think I've done that exactly the same way, but something is not right, either in my system or I did something wrong while trying to install katoolin.

  • It looks like you already have leftover files in /usr/bin/katoolin. Remove the katoolin directory and its contents recursively using this command: sudo rm -r /usr/bin/katoolin and try again. Please comment or edit your question and report any errors. – karel Mar 23 '18 at 5:05
  • btw You are already root, so you don't need to type sudo katoolin - katoolin will do instead. – karel Mar 23 '18 at 5:19

Simply run this :-

sudo bash -c "test -e /usr/bin/python || (apt -qqy update && apt install -qy python-minimal)

Then run command "katoolin"
