This question already has an answer here:

I was reading a tutorial about installing Kali tools in Ubuntu. at the start, the instructions say to add repositories like this:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux2/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION main 
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux2/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION main 
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION main 
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION main 

And in your Ubuntu version you have the following option

Ubuntu 12.04: Precise
Ubuntu 12.10: Quantal
Ubuntu 13.04: Raring

What is the code for 14.04? Can we install Kali tools in Ubuntu 14.04 or not?

  • @edwardtorvalds I rolled back your edit since it didn't remove the redundant line at the end. – muru Dec 3 '14 at 6:14
  • @zeitue so can i install kali tools by using this? – Anurag Kumar Dec 3 '14 at 6:17
  • @AnuragKumar no I thought you needed to know what the release name was. I looked and there are no packages for Trusty – zeitue Dec 4 '14 at 0:20

None of these PPAs support 13.10 or higher versions of Ubuntu. You can try using the code for 13.04 (raring), or install 12.04 and then use the PPA.

To get the code for any version of Ubuntu, use lsb_release:

$ lsb_release -sc
  • Quite a few tools are in the ubuntu repos and can be installed manually - eg aircrack-ng,nmap... – Rohith Madhavan Dec 3 '14 at 6:19

    @KasiyA since these are PPAs: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:... makes the lsb_release unnecessary. – muru Dec 3 '14 at 6:20
  • @RohithMadhavan If you can make a comparative list, I think OP might find that as a useful answer. – muru Dec 3 '14 at 6:21
