Has it always done this, or is this new .. maybe after a kernel update ?

Looks like it doesn't need to be "installed" as much as it's just run from the extracted folder.

So yeah try it .. getting rid is theoretically as simple as deleting the extracted folder.

At the login screen hit Ctrl+Alt+F2, are you able to log on in text mode ?

If you run:
Code: [Select]
df -h
are any of the partitions full ?

If you can log on in text mode, do you get any error if you run:
Code: [Select]
sudo service lightdm restart

When you see the ""Shutting Down" screen, hit the "Esc" key .. you should see the shutdown sequence displayed .. what was it doing when it got stuck ?

You'd be better off on the Kali forum for this kinda issue.

General Help & Advice / Re: stop Opera update
« on: June 03, 2019, 02:57:15 pm »
If you look in
Code: [Select]
sudo xed /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opera-stable.list
you'll see a line like
Code: [Select]
deb https://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/ stable non-free #Opera Browser (final releases)
just comment it out, so it reads
Code: [Select]
## deb https://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/ stable non-free #Opera Browser (final releases)
and save the file.

The problem with this is Opera's VPN is known to sometimes stop working when they release a new version .. so if that's what you use it for.....

It is possible to do it without reinstalling, but if you haven't that much time/data invested in your current installation a reinstall may be the Easiest/Quickest option.

General Help & Advice / Re: Installing Chrome
« on: May 23, 2019, 02:18:06 pm »
I'm personally not seeing any problems with Chrome or Chromium (but then I'm on an Ubuntu base) .. but it's always a good idea to have the latest version of a web browser.
