    Installing Backtrack5 tools + menu in Ubuntu 10.10

    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
    Code:
    you@computer:~$ wget -q http://all.repository.backtrack-linux.org/backtrack.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - 
    you@computer:~$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    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
    Code:
    you@computer:~$ sudo apt-get install backtrack-gnome-essentials backtrack-menu-icons
    you@computer:~$ killall -9 gnome-panel
    backtrack-gnome-essentials installs the backtrack menu to your Gnome menu and backtrack-menu-icons installs the icons for the backtrack applications.
    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.

    I was wondering if I can do it on Linux Mint Maya?

    I don't know, but I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 and now the 64-bit repo gives me errors.
