    Post Maltego CE - Kali Linux 2020.1 - "Hangs on loading modules" - Solution

    First I wanted to say I also submitted this problem/solution combo to Maltego's Tech support.
    Posting here (first post) to ensure that other Kali users have a solution should they run into this issue.

    It might be specific to lower resolutions:
    OS: Kali Linux 2020.1 - non-root user
    Resolution: Laptop Screen (1366x768)

    Setup Maltego for the first time, and signed into app with newly created account.
    When prompted for updates allowed them to install (v4.2.3 -> 4.2.9)
    On Maltego restart, the splash screen comes up and it appears that Maltego "gets stuck loading modules".

    It is not actually stuck, I found that the Master Password entry screen is obscured by the splash screen.
    I could see the Master Password entry screen in my mini Workspace View 1, but nothing in 2 or 3.

    All workspace views had the splash screen so moving the Master Password entry screen between workspace screens was no help.

    I found that it is possible to remove the splash screen with --nosplash when running Maltego from a terminal ("maltego --nosplash").

    To update the Program entry for Maltego in the Whisker Launcher,
    1. Click the Whisker Menu.
    2. Click on "01 - Information Gathering"
    3. Right click on the maltego entry, and click "Edit Application"
    4. Update the Command entry, adding --nosplash between maltego and the closing quotes the whole command box will read:

    Code:
    sh -c "maltego --nosplash"
    The Master Password prompt appears every time, and is no longer obscured by the splash screen.

    Hopefully someone else will find this useful.
