    GNOME 3 on Kali

    I've been trying to get GNOME 3 working on Kali 1.1.0. Booting up presents me with an error, so I assume it's the Graphics Driver problem.

    My laptop uses the Intel HD 4400 but settings say the driver is Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 0x209) with experience set to fallback.

    I've downloaded a Linux Intel Graphics Installer 1.0.7 but running it in GDebi presents me with Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libglib2.0-0 (>=2.37.3)

    Any advice would be helpful.

    Thanks.

    Can you boot into recovery from grub as root and enter the following:

    Code:
    lspci
    lsusb
    Post your results so we know what gfx card you are using then we can troubleshoot more

    I've included the devices correspondingly.

    For lspci:

    VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0b)

    lsusb:

    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:8000 Intel Corp.

    Hello Snaker,

    Hopefully these will put you in the right direction, I've never owned an intel gfx card as I always buy Nvidia knowing their full support of linux is out there.

    Information on Linux Intel GFX Driver Availability:

    All Downloads For Intel GFX Cards Available:

    Community Page for Intel GFX Cards Open Source:
    https://01.org/linuxgraphics/community

    Or maybe try:
    Code:
    #On a fresh install of Kali mind you
    apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel
    service gdm3 restart
    Have you tried any of these yet?
    Best of luck!

    I have the same exact issue as OP. I just have Intel HD 5500 and am currently displaying the gallium driver. attempts to install latest Intel HD driver results in the same.
    "Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libglib2.0-0 (>=2.37.3)"

    running the command you listed above reusults in:


    apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    xserver-xorg-video-intel is already the newest version.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.


    however, the "Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 0x209)" is still the active driver.

    So question is how do we install libglib 3.37.3 or greater?

    That version of Libglib isn't in the Kali repo (if I recall correctly)

    I was trying to install the latest xorg Intel driver from the debian experimental repo (this is a terrible idea, don't try it) as I expected, it broke a lot of stuff as it installed. More than would be worth going through fixing.

    Your best bet would be to lodge a update request in the Kali bug tracker to get it updated in the Kali repo.
    chown -R us ./base

    I will do that then... I also actually just installed backbox and it is way better with updating drivers and having a newer version of XFCE.
