Change desktop environment in Kali Linux Latest version [ How to Guide]

Change desktop environment in Kali Linux - How to, that's what we're going to see in this post. Recently we had seen the new undercover mode in Kali Linux 2019.4, one of our blog reader had contacted me through contact us page and asked "Bro, i had seen your guide on how to enable undercover mode in Kali Linux, there you had mentioned that this works only on xfce environment and we have to change our desktop environment from default one, so can you tell me how to do that (change desktop environment in Kali Linux)?, thanks in advance" that's what the question i received. So, i decided to write a separate post for that, so that it might be helpful for other persons as well.

Note: There might be lot of methods available for this, which might be difficult for the beginner i will share the simplest one.

How to change desktop environment in Kali Linux Latest version [Guide]

Changing this is very easy. All you need is another desktop environment like gnome, KDE, etc..

I assume you have another desktop environment already installed on your PC because it might be sometimes.

So, how to do that ? Just restart your System or logout the user. No, I'm not kidding! Just restart the system and wait for the system to load all the components. Now, while on sign-in/ Lockscreen it will ask for username right ? enter the user name and Hit enter. 

While on Password screen (Enter password screen) You might see settings icon. Click that, you will get the desktop environments installed on your PC.

Select the one you want to enter, for example : Xfce or gnome. Enter password as usual and Hit enter key.

That's it your system will load the desktop environment you had selected using this you can change gnome / xfce or to any other desktop in Kali Linux.

Bing launches flight booking and expanded visual search

Bing flights has finally arrived, a feature that that will allow the users to search for flights without looking for different sites/ leaving bing. This feature is rolling out to users in the U.S. first with international markets to follow shortly after.

This is a pretty much similar feature like google flights. If you want to travel from USA to India then typing "flights from USA to India " on bing. Bing search engine will list all the flights in the search page itself. You can view the schedule, payment and everything with just a click without leaving the search engine.

Bing launches flight booking and expanded visual search

                "One area we’re seeking to make more frictionless for our users is flight booking. Finding flights can be time-consuming, confusing, and involve searches across various websites, particularly during the holidays.

To solve this, we partnered with flight booking sites to provide a comprehensive booking experience in one place on Bing, so you can browse relevant results with accurate prices and minimal wait time" quoted Bing.

It also announced that it is expanding its visual search the feature that will capture the image, reverse image search and will show the details about the image. For example : If you opened the char image and wants to know where the particular chair was available,then it will do reverse image search(through search the image with search option) and will show you the information like its available on Amazon, bestbuy,etc but this work only if you are United states and United Kingdom .

This two features are already available on various platforms, i guess bing has added this now to keep its loyal search base from leaving their site. What do you think ?

You can now jail break iOS 13.3 too - checkra1n 0.9.7 now available for free download

Jail breaking apple devices especially iPhones was once a different task as apple will keep on releasing patches whenever there was a news regarding jail break of iPhones, but that was history and not now after the release of checkra1n, the jail breaking software which is almost impossible to stop.

The reason behind that was it uses an hardware based exploit named checkm8 (the bootrom exploit). As this is an hardware based exploit so no matter what version of iOS(like iOS 15) apple releases it can be easily jailbreaked (Jailbreaking is nothing but the concept of removing the software restrictions set by Apple, a kind of root access).

So, if you have a Mac PC then want to jailbreak your iPhone then visit the below link and follow the onscreen instructions to install.

Is this software available only for Mac?

Yes, the developers has released this software only for Mac as of now, and they are actively developing the tool to work on Linux and Windows PC's too.

This tool is still in beta, so we don't recommend you to install the tool on your primary device, instead try on different device (it works on latest iPhone 11 too).

Though it is not an easy task like clicking an option on Windows its simple if you know the commands to do that. So, in this post let's see how to uninstall opera from Kali Linux

Remove opera Kali Linux [Guide].

 First, we have to find out the Opera's name as per our system, as there are chances we might have installed opera beta as well as Opera stable, so we will find it out that first.

1) Opera terminal

2) Type dpkg -l *opera* and hit enter.

3) When you ran the above command, it will show the package on our system like "Opera-stable" or "Opera-beta" or some other name.

4) Once you found out the name, then run the following command (The package installed on my system is stable version, so if its stable on our system as well , then run...

sudo dpkg -r opera-stable command.
