    Can I add kali repos to ubuntu default repos?

    would there be any complications that may arise ? I want to install kali tools in ubuntu and i am looking for a way to install it without using KATOOLIN.

    Maybe take a look here.

    From the article
    We will not only correctly add repositories, but also configure the low priority of Kali Linux repositories, thanks to this:

    • with automatic updates, Kali Linux packages will not replace the main distribution packages, even if Kali Linux has newer versions
    • it will be possible to install any Kali Linux programs
    • when new versions of Kali Linux programs are released, they will be automatically updated along with other packages in the system

    You can but we cannot ensure anything about the content or what packages will be updated or issues caused therein. You can but the outcome will be uncertain. I suggest snapshotting (If it is a VM) before. Alternatively you can run Kali from a USB stick and use that when needed and use Ubuntu for your daily stuff.

    Good suggestion - Often the simple solution is the way forward.
