Download the .ova from Tracelabs website, VM
View Tracelabs repository on Github.
Check your download integrity (SHA256 hash).
The VM is neat, and very cool. Before starting working with it, I recommend doing a few updates and setups (at your discretion).
First set your keyboard: Open a terminal (ĉ alt t)and
$setxkbmap [lang] (it can be fr if you need and azerty for example) note: as kali:kali is the user:password by default, you may have ecounter a bit struggle with the keyboard mapping.
There are two things you absolutely must do: update and/or upgrades of your VM, and change the default password.
Run the script “Update System”, visible on Desktop.
$sudo apt update $sudo apt upgrade -y
note: “apt” stands for Aptitude, it’s a package manager for this Debian based distribution.
It might take a bit of time. [coffee]
You may need to reboot your vm: $sudo reboot $sudo apt update If there are old packages to remove: $sudo apt autoremove
If for some scripts your need to have a different user:
$su - [new user]
Ususally Tor browser tells you if you need and update, but I go check manually: Preferences, Tor Browser Updates, and click Check for Updates.
For Tor Downloaded files, I usually create a specific folder so that I don’t mix downloads: Preferences, Files and Applications, Downloads, Save files to [path], click browse and select of create the folder you want to use.
And as in any navigators, you can set up the fonts, size and color of the text. Preference, Language and Appearace, Fonts and Colors.
Note that the default search bar reference to DuckDuckGo, you can change this setting by going to Preferences, Search, Search Bar, and select the one your want (Youtube, Google, DuckDuckGoOnion,Startpage,Twitter,Wikipedia, Yahoo).
Note that any cookies and site data will be cleared when you close a Tor Browser.
It’s not an exaustive covering of the topic, but a few remarks regarding an usage I have. I consider this can make sense to other people too.
PROS: Potential of the VM, to collect a set of tools.
