I am trying to create symbolic link for Firefox using this command:

$ sudo ln -s /opt/firefox/firefox /usr/lib/firefox/firefox
ln: failed to create symbolic link '/usr/lib/firefox/firefox': No such file or directory

I have tried doing it with -sv but same result

    Does directory /usr/lib/firefox/ exist? – steeldriver Sep 25 at 11:55

The /usr/lib/firefox/firefox file only exists if the default Firefox from the Ubuntu repositories is installed. Reinstalling it with sudo apt install firefox would remove this error message. It would also be appropriate to check if installing packages with Kali Linux tools uninstalled any other applications which are installed by default in Xubuntu.
