Hi

1st posting just installed I would like to have Terminator installed It,s not in the repos has anyone installed this?
I have downloaded the tar file but it requiers dependencies


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

The above 2 are in sources.list

I would like to recommend to go ahead and compile it from source. Here is the latest from the official site;
http://launchpad.net/terminator/trunk/0.97/+download/terminator-0.97.tar.gz

I believe you can run these commands after you download the source (Haven't tried, but this is fairly standard;):
tar -xzvf terminator-0.97.tar.gz
./configure
make
make install

Hi

It dosn't install the standard way. Anyway it will be a dependencie **** to install. I have installed on another distro but Kali the Glib is to old which is not a good idea to rebuild.
I wonder why this package was not included it has been with Bt for a couple of releases which is where I found it. It is very usefull for running many terminal windows all visable at once
Is there any chance the developers can add this package???

There are additional Kali sources that can be used, however as a word of caution the repo's on the documentation page are the recommended repos, as adding these additional ones may cause issues down the line. With that in mind, you can try appending your sources.list file with the following:


deb [arch=i386,amd64,armel,armhf] http://http.kali.org/kali kali-dev main contrib non-free
deb [arch=i386,amd64,armel,armhf] http://http.kali.org/kali kali-dev main/debian-installer
deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-dev main contrib non-free

deb [arch=i386,amd64,armel,armhf] http://http.kali.org/kali kali main contrib non-free
deb [arch=i386,amd64,armel,armhf] http://http.kali.org/kali kali main/debian-installer
deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali main contrib non-free

deb [arch=i386,amd64,armel,armhf] http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free

It's worth a shot if your willing to take the risk. I personally do not know if this will provide terminator or not though as I haven't tried.
