    What steps have you taken to install it, errors encountered? – douggro May 13 '13 at 6:51
  • I understand that this tool can crack WiFi passwords, but it can also be used for pen testing your own network (says hakermania), so, this is a legitimate question. Downvoters... please! – hytromo May 13 '13 at 8:23
  • Also, this guide had worked for me: riyazwalikar.com/2010/12/… – hytromo May 13 '13 at 8:36

I don't know what steps you have taken, but aircrack-ng is in the "universe" repositories.

All you need to do is open up a terminal, and type in the following:

sudo apt-get install aircrack-ng

This will install the whole suite, including airmon, airodump, and aireplay.

Make sure that you have the universe repository enabled. To do that, search and open the "Software Sources" from the dash, and make sure that the universe repository is checked (the highlighted one below).

If all of this still does not work, follow the steps listed in this answer here.

I would recommend you take a look at Backtrack Linux. Its a distribution for penetration testing with all the tools ready to use. Saved me alot of time during a class last semester.
