How can I install all the Kali linux tools at once? This is what I have.

enter image description here
View the categories of available software in katoolin interface

Can I just press 0 for everything to be installed at once, without going into one category at a time when installing?

  • Kali is not supported in this forum, but I would suggest you just try pressing 0. If that doesn't work you could modify the script or copy/paste the corresponding commands in a new script and execute that. – Kev Inski Sep 6 '16 at 8:02

    is it me or does the screen actually say "or press (0) to install all"? – Rinzwind Sep 6 '16 at 11:49

    That's what the screen says, but it's kind of like a vending machine that doesn't give you your can of soft drink due to possibly missing packages. – karel Sep 6 '16 at 12:09

It probably won't work because a lot of the requested packages can't be found, so you'll have to do it the hard way.

Press 0 to install all Kali linux tools.

When you go to View Categories and then enter 0 for all, the installer will immediately return to where you were. Scroll up, and you'll see that a number of the packages can't be found. Those packages are no longer maintained or have been removed from the Kali repositories. Even with this issue, you'll still find a lot of the Kali software available for installation.

So the best option is to install Kali linux tools in a series of distinct steps. Just like if you want to install Forensic tools on your system, then choose its option from the category and then type 0 to install all forensics tools.

If you wish to go back to the main menu, type gohome in your katoolin interface. Now select the option 3 or 4 to install either the classicmenu indicator or the Kali menu. Press the y key to continue and then press Enter to start its setup.

Once you are done with installation of Kali tools using katoolin, you can quit by pressing the keyboard combination Ctrl+C and you will see the goodbye message.

shutdown requested....Goodbye...
