    I have seen a many people use live desktop for Linux Mint to bring their desktop to life. They can display CPU Stats, IP Addresses, etc. all from their desktop. Is there any possible way to do that in Kali? Also, would it be possible to create a short movie and have that continuously repeat as my background? Thank-you, in advance.

    Released!!!!(fixed version) 15568 lines of bash scripting code!!

    Added support for amd64 ,i386,686 images
    Added compability to create Kali linux: jessie,wheezy,sid,squeeze
    Desktops Building Capabilities : XFCE,KDE,ICEWM,GNOME,MATE,LXDE,E17


    Kali Linux Generator its a script that automates the building process of kali linux images (iso)!!!

    removed Desktop Building Capabilitie E17 option


    option 1 :You can just build a Kali Linux image

    or

    option 2 : the created iso will be remixed (if you choose to remix distributions) with the current installed system ,what does this mean?? it mean that you will get a kali linux image with your current settings,wallpapers,documents(something like backup to a new operating system

    NOTE:
    To remix distribution with kali linux generator you most choose the exact desktop that your installed system has on it installed !! otherwise you will get a kernel panic when you try to boot to the created iso , keep that in mind brothers !!
    No comments.. this script is what any lazy people out there needs!!


    Note : This script is tested only under debian linux!! it is not tested on Ubuntu..





    DOWNLOADS : http://www.blackhatsec.org/ ( download link)

    Please brothers test it and report any error back... and thank you very match for helping me make it perfect brothers !! its a nice tool(script)
    Added compability to create Kali linux: jessie,wheezy,sid,squeeze

    Hi everyone, I really like Cinnamon and it is available in the repositories I currently have Kali installed with gnome as the default WM and then i ran 'apt-get --install-recommends --install-suggests install cinnamon' and now I have cinnamon installed as well. I would really like to custom build an ISO with cinnamon as the default WM, is there anyway this can be done?? I have visted http://docs.kali.org/live-build/cust...4gs60kxhsfj1_2 but there is no option for cinnamon.

    If i can't custom build a Cinnamon ISO I really like KDE. I was running Kubuntu for a year but I've had a countless issues with lightdm. Is lightdm the default greeter for kail-KDE??

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    How to Build your own Kali Linux Distribution (based on your installed debian)


    1. Backup your sources list !

    cd /etc/apt/

    sudo mkdir /etc/apt/backup

    sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.backup

    ##. Replace the existing sources list with those sources that you will need to build your distribution!

    rm -rf /etc/apt/sources.list

    mv /etc/apt/sources.list.backup /etc/apt/backup

    touch /etc/apt/sources.list

    echo "##kali stable
    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

    deb [arch=i386,amd64,armel,armhf] http://repo.kali.org/kali kali-bleeding-edge main
    deb-src http://repo.kali.org/kali kali-bleeding-edge main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

    2. Install the live build package and some packages that maybe needed to build your distribution!

    cd ..

    ## just to make sure your are to the correct directory!
    cd /root

    wget -q -O - https://www.kali.org/archive-key.asc | gpg --import

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install squashfs-tools apt-cacher-ng genisoimage git debian-archive-keyring kali-archive-keyring

    sudo apt-get install live-build dosfstools genisoimage memtest86+ mtools parted squashfs-tools genext2fs mtd-tools sudo fakeroot uuid-runtime win32-loader syslinux syslinux-themes-debian syslinux-themes-debian-squeeze

    apt-get -f install -y

    git clone git://git.kali.org/live-build-config.git

    3. Configure the live build config to build you distro!!

    cd /root/live-build-config/

    ln -sf kali /usr/share/live/build/data/debian-cd/kali

    apt-get update

    lb config --distribution kali

    4. Select the Desktop you like to build (etc XFCE,KDE...)
    ## for XFCE execute those commands :

    cd /root/live-build-config/config/package-lists

    rm -rf kali.list.chroot

    rm -rf standard.list.chroot

    touch standard.list.chroot

    touch kali.list.chroot

    apt-get --purge -y autoremove" >> /root/update-kali

    chmod +x /root/update-kali

    cd ..

    cd /root/live-build-config

    ## execute those commands only if you like to include kali linux official wallpappers

    mkdir -p /root/live-build-config/config/includes.chroot/usr/share/wallpapers/kali/contents/images

    cd /root/live-build-config/config/includes.chroot/usr/share/wallpapers/kali/contents/images/ &
    wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/n2vujwlt8h...rs.tar.gz?dl=0

    mv Kali-Wallpapers.tar.gz?dl=0 Kali-Wallpapers.tar.gz

    tar -xzvf Kali-Wallpapers.tar.gz

    rm -rf Kali-Wallpapers.tar.gz

    rm -rf Kali-Wallpapers.tar.gz?dl=0

    cd ..

    cd

    cd /root/live-build-config/

    5. Select the architecture you like to build!
    #for amd64 execute the following command:
    lb config --architecture amd64
    apt-get update

    #for i386 execute the following command:
    lb config --architecture i386
    apt-get update

    #for 686 execute the following command:
    sed -i 's/686-pae/486/g' auto/config
    lb config --architecture i386
    apt-get update

    #for armel execute the following command:
    lb config --architecture armel
    apt-get update

    #for armhf execute the following command:
    lb config --architecture armhf
    apt-get update

    6. Final step is to build your distribution! ( i use the build log command to watch out for error in the build proccess )
    sudo lb build > build.log

    Remix the iso you have just created with your running distribution.(use always debian)
    To remix the created iso with your installed system download this script:
    ##before you run this script make sure you have a iso in your desktop directory called binary.iso
    download the script move it in your desktop directory and execute the following commands:
    link : http://bit.ly/1HCZP5T
    ##make it executable
    chmod a+x remixer.sh
