    I’m not sure this is still working with Debian, it may just be because it isn’t able to locate a lot of the packages it needs during the installation though, can anyone confirm if this works with the current Debian release

  2. James says:

    Hey I tried installing this recently on my debian distro and it goes through the motions like its going to install but when it actually comes to the installation it gives a bunch of errors saying certain packages were missing so they were ignored or old ones were used.

    So, I kinda assumed their was gonna be some packages that needed to be fixed but when i went to the synaptic package manager and checked the upgrade-able packages, literally every single needed package for these tools to work was listed as needing to be upgraded, and of course you couldnt upgrade anything without removing pretty much every single necessary package for the debian OS

    I installed Katoolin and have it running, but every time I try to download a certain category on it, it tells me: “Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock – open (13: Permission denied)“.

    It’s Perfectly Working For Me :)

  6. Tim says:

    I have attempted the 2nd method to install Katoolin as mentioned above. I was able to download the, unzip it, change directory, do the chmod command successfully. However, when I go to type the run command I get the following error:

    bash: ./ /usr/bin/python: bad interpreter: No such file or directory.

    I am new to Linux, and this is a fresh install of Ubuntu 17.10, and I have administrator rights to the system. Any help is “greatly” appreciated.

    Can i install this on Lubuntu? Also how much space does it require? I don’t need all of the tools but still.

    • Aaron Kili says:


      Sure, it is built for Ubuntu systems, so it should work in Lubuntu. And it requires a reasonable amount of space depending on the total number of packages(Kali security tools) available.
