Intelligence is simply talking to many people

Kali Linux (including AnyDesk)

VERIFYING download is not difficult. Download it, then click on the ‘sum’ thing on the download element to see the SHA256 checksum. That number should match the number you get when you cd Downloads and:


  • time zone: cuba
  • Power Manager (otherwise it will dim after 120seconds): Keep screen from locking:
  • Top-left menu > Settings > Power Manager > (fourth tab) Security > Automatically lock: Never, and uncheck []Lock screen when system is going to sleep
  • Make shortcuts on Desktop to Webpages: Make webpage a Favorite in browser, then drag it onto the Desktop.
  • Change wallpaper: Settings > Settings Manager > Desktop
  • Zoom into screen with Start + scroll wheel

INSTALL (already has Gparted, good text editors, Screenshot, Python, and something like Task Manager. Does not have snapd, audacity or VLC so no need to remove them).

  • sudo apt-get install hydrogen
  • sudo apt-get install gimp
  • sudo apt-get install kdenlive
  • sudo apt-get install gnome-disk-utility
  • sudo apt-get install shotwell
  • sudo apt-get install lmms (but the audio is scratchy)
  • sudo apt-get install vokoscreen
  • sudo apt-get install libreoffice
  • sudo apt-get install openvpn
  • sudo apt-get install monodevelop (not yet)
  • sudo apt-get install inkscape (for making svgs)
  • sudo apt-get install ardour
  • Fotowall ffrom website and make the 64-bit file executable and just launch it from the file
  • System Monitor shows internet traffic. Unlike Task Manager



  • sudo apt update
  • Sudo apt install system-config-printer cups
  • Systemctl enable cups
  • (after installing the Epson ecotank it was set to the wrong model and missed magenta lines. I double-clicked the printer in Print Settings and selected the actual model and it worked then, but not on ‘regular paper’ setting)
  • sudo apt-get install font-manager

OTHER PRINTER INSTRUCTIONS (not sure if the above replaces this):


  • Menu > Keyboard > Layout, unlock the Default settings and +add Spanish, and set a ‘Change layout option.' I selected:
  • Ctrl-shift to change language imput


  • just put a folder with them in home/username/.local/share/fonts
  • Kali has a bunch in user/share/fonts. You can delete some (I'm not sure which ones you can delete without losing render ability. But I deleted the Noto folder (so many fonts), roboto, and some others. I had to change the fonts in CherryTree after (File > Freferences > Fonts) urw-base35 is the one used by LibreOffice (and maybe CherryTree also). Spanish fonts: Antic, Aquiline.
  • Hindi fonts won't display unless you sudo apt-get install fonts-indic
  • Garamond font for book printing


  • .fonts in home directory acts like a place to find fonts
  • /usr/share/fonts is where pre-installed system fonts are (maybe don't delete these)
  • Or find your font location by opening Font Manager and R-click > Open location



  • See note below on AnyDesk, because inside a VM Kali doesn't seem to be able to install AnyDesk. Lubuntu from site.


  • Download from website. In folder, Terminal, then tar xf [filename]. This makes an .sfz file.
  • (that didnt work, I think maybe only sf2 files)

HTTrack (for downloading entire websites for offline reading)


  • anydesk from website. Comes as a .deb file.
  • Missing libdgk-whatever. Upgrade DOES NOT fix this.
  • So far, can't get it to work, although I think I got it to work once on someone's kali
  • Don't forget, it works on Lubuntu.
sudo apt update
sudo apt install -y gnupg2
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb all main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/anydesk.list'
wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt -y update && sudo apt -y install anydesk

then, because kali isn't supported:

sudo dpkg -i libpangox-1.0-0_0.0.2-5.1_amd64.deb


YT_DLP (youtube-dl didn't work for me last time)
