I have had some trouble installing Backtrack5 tools and especially the menu in Ubuntu 10.10, so I decided to make a really quick guide for this.
1. Adding the repositories
Start Synaptic Package Manager
go to Settings -> Repositories -> Other Software Sources
Add these to your repository list.
deb http://all.repository.backtrack-linux.org revolution main microverse non-free testing
deb http://32.repository.backtrack-linux.org revolution main microverse non-free testing (only for 32-bit Ubuntu)
deb http://64.repository.backtrack-linux.org revolution main microverse non-free testing (only for 64-bit Ubuntu)
deb http://source.repository.backtrack-linux.org revolution main microverse non-free testing
Uncheck or remove (they are useless anyway) the newly added backtrack source repositories from the list.
Open up a terminal and run
You will already upgrade a couple of packages installed on Ubuntu to the ones in the Backtrack repositories.
2. Setting up the backtrack menu
IGNORE ANYTHING YOU HAVE GOOGLED ABOUT THIS BEFORE
backtrack-gnome-essentials installs the backtrack menu to your Gnome menu and backtrack-menu-icons installs the icons for the backtrack applications.
you@computer:~$ sudo apt-get install backtrack-gnome-essentials backtrack-menu-icons
you@computer:~$ killall -9 gnome-panel
you need to kill the gnome panel to see the new icons instead of the "icon not found"-icons
I'm still looking for a way to see the backtrack menu specific icons, so if you find out how to see those, please post here.
I did this in Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit, but I guess it works for other Ubuntu versions using Gnome2 as well.
