I was trying to download hcxpcaptool in Ubuntu but I couldn't find it in the repository so I downloaded it using this command:

wget git clone https://github.com/ZerBea/hcxtools.git

but I am not able to install it.

I was trying to install it using this command:

cd hcxtools
cd hcxtools.git

but the output is:

bash: cd: hcxtools: No such file or directory

so how can I install this hcxpcaptool?

enter image description here

    git clone https://github.com/ZerBea/hcxtools.git is a command in its own right - don't put wget in front of it (that's a different protocol) Jul 7, 2020 at 17:01

    cd ~/Desktop/hextools-master

You want to start by reading the file labeled "README". It will tell you everything that you need to know about installing the program (or at least it should). You can ignore the hcxtools.git directory. I highly recommend getting to know git a bit more by running through some basic tutorials, but for now you can ignore that directory completely.

I see a make file in the directory you have pictured. This means that you will have to use the make command to build it. So from the terminal

sudo apt install make
cd ~/Desktop/hcxtools-master

Running make by itself will "target all" in the make file and build your program

Please note that I have not read the README file in that repository so I do not know if anything additional is needed.


hey finally i've found the answer after downloading i have to install zlib dev using this command

apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev libssl-devzlib1g-dev libpcap-dev
make install
