HI All I have finally taken the jump to linux mint on my latop (bye bye windows complete erase installation). So rather then having 2 systems sharing the same home directory etc, or Dual booting 2 os's Can i get the tools airmon,wireshark,metaspolit etc to run from the mint os? I believe they are both derivatives of Debian so is it possible or I am must understanding something. If i have to run a dual boot can someone walk me through that process.

What you need to do is determine which tools you want or need. If you really want all the Kali tools, you need to find a list of them and add them. It's honestly probably easier to just dual boot your laptop or just use Kali. Dual booting is really simple and there are many guides online. You can just split your hard drive down the middle and use each half for its own OS. I don't recommend that, because you should be able to share your swap and home partitions and only have separate root and boot partitions for each OS. I personally suggest either finding the tools you actually plan on using in Mint or just going to a full Kali system as Kali is still a good Linux distro for normal work, just a little more in depth than Ubuntu or Mint. Hi I have no terminal in Kali. I have removed cinnamon. When I am running kali on a live usb it works, but doesn't when i install it. I have reinstalled it 4 times (beginner so it choses the deciding for me; also wipe entire hard drive and start again has always been my method of installing this). kind Regards' ShenLun If you want to run Mint and also have Kali tools, give Katoolin a try.
