    this will break your gnome or kde if your not carefull!
    i suggest editting the file and replace all the “apt-get -y” with “apt-get” and look for yourself what is installable and what not, after installing wht you need, remove the kali sources again or find a way to prevent updating from them instead of the ubuntu repos.

    Same as josh. After installation my gnome was gone …

      That is so regrettable, however, as i have mentioned somewhere in the previous comments, installation of this tools has resulted into undesired system breakages for many users. Sorry about your situation but you can share your ordeal with the developers of the tool at the Github repository: for any suggestions and possible improvements.

    This tool will not only install Kali tools, but will remove your display manager, KDE in my case, which did not go over well. stear clear of this script if you’re smart.

    @Herro Rarrah

    Sorry about that, it is always safer to test in virtual machine before installing on your work machine. Above all, thanks for the feedback and i hope you recover from that.
