So I am a noob to the system. Trying to learn it though. I want to enable the NetworkManger but whenever I add the prompt cd /etc/NetworkManager (according to the course I am following) it says:

 

bash: cd: etc/NetworkManger no such file or directory.

 

What could be the solution? And I am also unable whatever I did to have a full screen?

 

I am using the latest Kali Linux version that I downloaded it today from the official website and the latest version of Oracle VM VirtualBox

 I hope someone can help me fastly  :)

Thanks, guys!

Hi

 

Is this the first time you have used Linux?

Hi.

 

With all due respect Kali Linux is not for people who are not at least familiar with Linux, may I suggest you try something more user friendly.  Linux Mint or Ubuntu, We would be happy to guide you in setting up a Linux PC, then, once you are more comfortable with Linux and doing things in terminal you can try Kali Linux.

 

You can learn basic terminal here

Nick

Thanks for your suggestion. I appreciate it. It turned out that the sources list was wrong. Now it is fixed!

Good to hear that you got whatever fixed. :)

 

I agree with Nick above, it would be good to learn more about Linux via more traditional distros, Linux Mint is a good one, have ran it for over 8 years w/out any major issues.

 

Good Luck with Kali & your learning curve, which will be much steeper than a mainstream distro. :)

Plenty of Kali Linux tutorials on you tube. looks a difficult one to learn with no formal Linux training. What do you plan to do once you have learned to use Kali or is that a silly question?

I'm starting computer science and engineering bachelor this September and I would like to work in security on pen testing or something like that. So I'm just exploring Kali to learn some ethical hacking and to get to know some tools.

September isn't far away, and before you learn ethical hacking with Kali, you'll need to find your way around the Linux terminal and get to know Linux in general.

I suggest starting off with A Practical Guide to Linux Commands, Editors, and Shell Programming. You can download the 2nd edition as a pdf file from a link on this page. It's an older edition, but that won't matter to a beginner because the basics are the same. The book contains plenty of exercises and practical examples, and learning as much of it as you can within the available time, will give you a good head start with Linux by the time you start your course in September.

Thanks, guys. I appreciate that most of you giving my an advice to try another version first or so, but I have some experience in programming and I am a fast learner so already by now I learned many commands and how to find my way throw out Kali. I think I will stick with it for now. Thanks!
