    Need Help With Grub2 on Kali

    Hello, total forum and kali linux noob here. I have Triple booted my laptop and made (In my case anyway) of installing kali first. It is now utilizing its own grub startup and I would like to either have full control to customize it OR be able to switch my laptop to using my linux Mint 17 grub launcher so I can customize it completely with my better knowledge of Mint over Kali. I had tried to install grub-customizer to Kali, but I keep getting the same errors. I have looked at several tutorials to fix the problem and they all yeild the same problem (ironicly). when ever I try to install from a ppa, I get the "add-apt-repository: command not found" error. I looked and found that I should install python-software-properties, but I get this error -
    "Package python-software-properties is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package 'python-software-properties' has no installation candidate". I have tried to solve this problem with methods I found on blackmoreops.com but they all yeild the same error. I even tried installing grub-customizer from source, still recieving the same error trying to install the dependancys.

    In conclusion, I would like to install grub-customizer on Kali, completely fix the errors I am recieving, or switch my laptop from using Kali grub on start up to Linux Mint grub.

    This is my first forum post in forever and I thank you for even taking the time to read.

    about grub this is general steps if you have multi boot linux and windows systems on computer
    from first installed Linux (with grub installed) just use (it is better then install grub with every Linux distro).

    sudo update grub
    if you want to make specific OS to be first then you have to edit grub
    sudo leafpad /etc/default/grub
    and make all changes
