  1. under kali 2.0 there are two errors with this tutorial:
    wget method works for installation however running the software doesn't work as the error
    "mlabel not found. This is required for Arch Linux install mode.
    Install the "mtools" package or your distribution's equivalent."
    a person using this method would need to type sudo apt-get install mtools to make this work.

    the second method apt-get does not work as the appropriate ppa repository is not stock installed in the kali 2.0 repository lists
