    I have a fresh install of Kali, I've downloaded the recent os-scripts from your github.

    For some reason I get the following error when I begin the script .

    [+] Disabling notification package updater service ~ in case it runs during this script
    [!] Failed to kill /usr/lib/apt/methods/http
    [!] There another service (other than this script) using Advanced Packaging Tool currently
    apt is not running anywhere else. I've tried a few dfferent things, no luck.

    The script was not designed for this (nor Kali). It would be a lot of work to make it happen - "root" has been used & hardcoded (and without permission checks).

    If you are 100% sure, nothing else is using 'apt-get' - remove the following files before re-running the script:

    /var/lib/dpkg/lock
    /var/lib/apt/lists/lock

    For some reason the latest script did not agree with my Kali Installation

    I used the last revision of the script , I was able to get a little further until
    [i] Detected multiple kernels installed
    Seems I do have more then one,
    root@kb0x:~/Desktop# dpkg --list | grep linux-image
    ii linux-image-4.0.0-kali1-amd64 4.0.4-1+kali2 amd64 Linux 4.0 for 64-bit PCs
    ii linux-image-4.1.0-kali1-amd64 4.1.6-1kali2 amd64 Linux 4.1 for 64-bit PCs
    ii linux-image-amd64 4.1+67+kali1 amd64 Linux for 64-bit PCs (meta-package)
    I'm using the latest kernel at the moment. What do you suggest I do?

    EDIT:

    I've tried renaming the old kernel, no luck.

    I removed the old one that was not in use and now the script is running.

    Don't rename. Remove.

    Reboot & make sure you are using the latest version before removing the older kernels. There's various guides online how todo this.

    Thanks,

    I verified that I was booting with the most recent kernel by checking grub.conf. Then removed others with apt .

    Script finished.

    Any more posts asking how to use whats on Github will be removed.

    If I came from Github, ask on Github.
    This thread is for getting XFCE on Kali, using whats on pastebin.

    My apologies

    of course you're right, this thread gives only a subtile hint to the postinstall script on github. I followed your advice and had opened an issue as you have surely noticed. Hope to hear from you guys.

    Thx

    For some reason the TL;DR code did not work.

    I used this:
    Code:
    curl -s http://pastebin.com/raw/58wsGhBD | tr -d '\15\32' | bash

    Say thank you !!

    I tested this and works, but cant control brightness with FN+F5 or F6 keys. Also sound in missing... These options works great in default Gnome in Kali 2.0. How to get working this things in XFCE4?

    EDIT: I fixed brightness issues with installing this packages via "Packages" utility:

    Hello, since running kali.sh script I'm not being able to access shares through gnome or XFCE, I've tried Thunar and Nautilus and the result is the same, can you help me sort this out please?

    Best Regards.
