I use Ubuntu, and I've used the katoolin script to install Kali Tools.

The only problem is that this makes my PC startup very slow.

# systemd-analyze 
Startup finished in 3.208s (firmware) + 3.032s (loader) + 8.616s (kernel) + 2min 29.568s (userspace) = 2min 44.427s

# systemd-analyze blame

         55.696s plymouth-quit-wait.service

Is there a script to delete all the Kali Linux tools?

so I looked at this script and if I got it right, the following steps should delete everything or at least the most.

  1. Disable the kali-tools repositories:

    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

    Find the line with

    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free

    and put a # in front of it to comment it out. Save and close (Ctrl+O, Enter, Ctrl+X).

  2. Uninstall the packages which were installed by the script.

  3. Straighten out the mess left behind:

    sudo apt-get autoremove
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install -f
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
