|0005594||Kali Linux||Kali Package Bug||public||2019-07-23 14:05||2021-07-07 15:16|
|Fixed in Version||2021.2|
|Summary||0005594: Application "Software & Updates" (software-properties-gtk) does not work in Kali|
Running software-properties-gtk in the command line fails with:
To fix this, we need to modify python-apt to add some Kali specific files in data/templates (which get installed in /usr/share/python-apt/templates/ in python-apt-common).
This change should be submitted upstream (https://salsa.debian.org/apt-team/python-apt).
The fix has been submitted here: https://salsa.debian.org/apt-team/python-apt/merge_requests/15
I also had to update base-files to add a VERSION_CODENAME value in /etc/os-release.
I wanted to upload a forked python-apt but it fails to build currently so I can't do it: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=932834
I try your method,but still not working. T_T
Our change has been merged in Debian, but it's only available in python-apt > 1.9.0 which is in experimental and has backwards incompatible changes so I will no import it for now. I'll wait until it reaches unstable/testing.
Latest python-apt is now available in kali so this should be fixed.
