How to install GNOME desktop on Kali

In this tutorial you will learn how to install GNOME desktop on kali.

Follow the step by step instructions to install GNOME and learn how to switch between Xfce and GNOME desktop environments once both are installed. We’ll also see how to remove Xfce completely, in case you want to make a permanent switch to GNOME.

Step 1- Open a terminal and type the following commands to install GNOME.

$sudo apt update

$sudo apt install kali-desktop-gnome

Step 2- If you receive a notification that asks you what display manager to use, select gdm3, as that is the display manager for GNOME.

Select "gdm3"

Step 3- Installation may take some time, as many packages and their dependencies will have to be downloaded and installed. But once installation has completed, reboot the computer.


Step 4- When Kali finishes loading back up, you'll be presented with the option to select GNOME or Xfce from the login screen (note that you must first select your user).
