Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance :)

To fix this, you need to make a small edit to the kalimenu script, located in the Kali chroot, in /usr/bin/kalimenu.

Change this :

python /opt/spiderfoot/sf.py

to this :

cd /opt/spiderfoot/ && python /opt/spiderfoot/sf.py

and re-start spiderfoot.

This fix has been pushed to github.
