    Took me few tries to figure out the graphical installer option is a fail itself lol

    Confirmed that this worked for me, after several different attempts to install that all failed. Tried the various differing partition schemes, thinking it was related, but in the end it seems to be some sort of an issue with the graphical installer.

    LXDE iso has been added aswell to the shared folder in the link above;;
    Note for LXDE iso:
    Added Openshot to the distro.

    Enjoy!

    Are you tired of the crappy gnome ?! Want a Kali on a lighter, faster, customizable Desktop environment !?
    Say Goodbye to Gnome and say hello to xfce4. No Gnome ! Let the gnomes go back in their caves, becouse its
    xfce4 Time !

    Below I am sharing with the Kali community my ISO BUILDS I updated with kali's updater before packing it all in.
    Tired of Kali being short on things it should have had ? Me too ! I got fed up with GNome, and their lack of some software...

    What IS inluded/packaged in this build and what it works on;
    ========================================
    - ---Works on OLD and NEW PCs [Pentiums 3 and up to the new modern Systems] Pentium 2 minimum required--- -
    ========================================

    ==INSTALLED EXTRA APPS== [things I believe kali should of had but doesn't or were missing]
    WEB tools
    - wicd --preinstalled for all your WI-fi needs and getting you up and running
    - Transmission -- for all your torrents you wish to download ?! And share?!
    - iceweasel
    - Adobe Flash --preinstalled and READY with iceweasel out-of-the-box

    Office tools
    - Abiword -- writer
    - Libreoffice --all ready for spreadsheets,drawing,and all your office needs
    -Orange Calendar --organizer with dates and appointments, etc...

    MEDIA tools
    - Vlc --media player that plays everything and never says no
    Graphics tools
    - guvcview -- easy, simple, fast WEBCAM application [alternative to cheese] lightweight and fully functional
    - Gimp --graphics [alternative and successor to photoshop]
    - Inkscape -- vector drawing tool

    ETC tools
    - Bleachbit --cleaning utility for all the junk your system gathers over time
    - htop -- monitoring system resource and processes
    - Gdebi -- easy way to install all your .deb packages you might download from the internet to install on your system
    - Wine --for running Windows applications on your linux box [set and pre-configured]
    - Unetbootin --making that USB flash drive bottable with linux of all kinds


    This Iso was created for you by Kali's user who felt that things needed to be included and also felt that GNome was unacceptable
    as a default DE for this splendidly AWESOME Debian linux spin for pen-testing-hacking and deserved to be remastered with xfce4
    and few extra apps with flash working out-of-the-box. Shared here with the community who feels the same about gnome.

    I hope you will find this ISO BUILD worthy of your download as it was worth my time making it come to light.
    I had 3 goals to make a new iso and which were these.

    1] It had to be lighter -xfce4 [check] --or the new lxde iso-- [check]
    2] Needed Flash working out of box by default and have a torrent application -adobe flash 11.2 + transmission [check]
    3] Needed it to work on all my pcs, not just the new ones [check and check]


    There you have it !
    Kali linux Xfce4 with all that's needed for everyday computing, hacking and testing.

    Kernel is non-pae for this reason and if you require more ram than 4 Gig then install a kernel with pae enabled using apt-get
    There are many tutorials on the web how to.


    Thank you for interest and I do hope this iso I am sharing will help someone
    As it stands, made by the users for the users, enjoy !


    Any suggestions? comments, please do leave a reply .

    --The Xfce4 is again presend in the shared folder in the OP link for download once again.--

    Recently, I discovered Lxde and switched to that
    Lxde is lighter, faster, simple and works better for the Ideal of this os to be light and mean and quick !~

    Note for LXDE iso:
    Added Openshot to the distro.

    Openshot --Video editing software

    Enjoy!

    Hi cjtron,

    Thank you for sharing your builds. I'm all for replacing gnome, and the extra apps sound good!

    Could you please describe the 3 available files for DL in your google drive shared folder?

    - Desktop141Release.iso
    - kali-1.0.6-xfce-i386-nonpae.iso
    - kali-lxde-1.0.6.iso

    Hi Quest,

    You are welcome, Have you tried them? I thought I'd post em since probably other people could find it useful too.
    Originally I was just to make a cd and delete it. But then it 'hit' me! And idea to post it and share it.
    Reason being becouse some ask about iso on the forum already about non-gnome image.

    To answer your question now!
    ===============
    - Desktop141Release.iso is a simplicity linux image, its a spin off of puppy linux with lxde and many useful apps preinstalled. Its Based on slacko puppy basically.
    It is not my iso but I put it in my shares incase my friend need to redownload it. Long story... Anyways, you can see simplicity on distrowatch.com
    ===============
    - kali-1.0.6-xfce-i386-nonpae.iso
    this is the original image I made for xfce4 till I got an idea some people would love also a lighter DE even for older pcs. Plus
    SOmethings I forgot to install like Openshot and Transmission [since I do alot of torrenting, oops] so I was like...
    ''Goddamnit'' And thus was born - kali-lxde-1.0.6.iso it's non-pae as well. Meaning it runs on old pcs and new.

    If you do not know what Pae on a distro means, check google for a better explenation, mine is this ; Pae enabled kernells
    are for extanded RAM above 4 gig. But if you need such Kernel, then you can ofcourse install it over the one on the iso.

    3 easy steps
    - install kali
    - open terminal type apt-get update, hit enter key and then type sudo apt-get install Your-kernel -y and hit enter key
    - reboot

    ===NOTE===
    Replace -Your-kernel with the linux-image name...
    You can search for linux-image using apt like so ; sudo apt-cache search linux-image
    But makesure you pick the image and not a linux image header like I did once
    and then wonder why it didnt work !!!! You'll know what I mean if you read carefully
    the search results.

    On topic, Basically to sum it up about the images in my folder,,,
    they are the same but the lxde one has 2 extra apps + is even lighter on pc vs xfce4.
    My fav DE is after all lxde

    Enjoy, any questions?Comments?Suggestions?

    Hi, I'm so glad you find this useful. Althought I'm so sorry you have a hard time downloading it. Seems to be working fine thought [[ I tried it on other pcs]]. BUT I'll reupload it somewhere else for you. Give me 2 hours ! If you see a new download link in the OP under the original links then you will know it's up and ready to try again for you Please, do leave a reply it worked for you this time !
    Thank you~

    Yeah so strange, everytime I tried to download it failed at last mb.. but I had some free time today, so I reinstalled and customized it myself again.



    I will try to download your iso again for sure, thanks for reuploading. Its better to have it ready with LXDE next time than configuring again and again. Thanks.

    Not pointless indeed. Keep it coming. Some of us will wait for 1.0.7, so I for one, will be looking forward to your next releases. Thank you!

    Stupid question but where do you guys get your themes for LXDE? I can't seem to find any good sites.
