Installing Kali on Qubes

I’ve looked at past posts from the forum and tried ChatGPT but I’m even more confused on how to install kali in a qube now. Could someone please provide the best link on how to install it. Thank you

You can install the kali template using this command in dom0 terminal:

qvm-template install --enablerepo=qubes-templates-community-testing kali-core

Also note that this is just a minimum kali template and you need to install kali-linux-default package inside to get all the default kali apps:

the command just stalls dom0 or is it just super long for the command to execute?

It can take a long time for it to download a repository info if you use slow connection e.g. Tor.

by clone the template do they mean to simply copy the template or to create an appvm from that template? where am I supposed to type kali-linux-default

First update your kali-core template.
Then open kali-core template Settings → Basic tab → press on Clone qube button.
You can name cloned template e.g. kali-default.

Install this package in kali-default template using this command in its terminal:

sudo apt install kali-linux-default
