Question using parrot linus, sudo get-wifi radar does nothing in terminal,unable to connect wifi radar


So I have searched, reviewed this is my first time in any linux system, but not even the tech shop knew how to use the parrot system.
I want to find the wifi radar but my built files do not show where to find it, and I need to download to determine the wifi source to log into.

It would help to know the make and model of your wireless network device in the computer, there may be a need to build a driver for it or add the proper firmware for the wireless device. Open a terminal and issue this command: lspci -nnk | grep -i net -A2 and post the results. Hopefully you are able to connect via ethernet for now to be able to copy/paste this information.

things i wrote about parrot linux earlier:

Quote:
parrot os seems to be not very well maintained, but its combination of a beautiful desktop and the security buzzword seems to attract many users.
i have stumbled upon quite many complaints about parrotos, and all i can say is take it to the maintainers. it's not fair that others should fix their distro, which seems hardly more than a vanity affair.
Quote:
ParrotOS has gained some popularity because it combines a well-polished desktop with buzzwords like securicy and privacy.
from reports like this one i get the impression that it's not quite stable.
i think the (mostly) sole developer is totally overwhelmed by all the help requests and bug reports coming in, and keeps directing people to debian resources.
however, parrotOS is not debian.

i think the best course of action is to ask on parrotOS' own forums, or use a different (more stable) distro altogether.
so far i haven't seen anything that would change my opinion.

sorry for the rant.

I fixed the setting for the wifi radar through the network setting, it works flawlessly with no need to download another wifi radar.
My new problem is the file opening, file transferring, correcting Microsoft file corruption from recent Windows update 1089, file recovery. This my second day tring to learn Parrot Os Linux, I would appreciate some tutorial on this type of module learnig.

I use a Dell Inspiron 3000 series 11.7 inch, 2 in 1 laptop. Is there an easier file system to download for Parrot Os Linux ?

You will have to be a lot more specific on what problems you are having with file opening and file transferring if you want help. That's pretty basic stuff. With regard to correcting microsoft file corruption due to a recent windows update, I doubt if Parrot OS is going to be of help. I would suggest you go to a windows/microsoft forum looking for a solution. A Linux system might be able to repair an ntfs filesystem but it will need to be a very minor problem. ntfs-fix is the software which you would likely need to install.

i can say from experience (although it was a few years ago) that NTFS data loss is very, very hard to fix with Linux.
Basically, the ntfs tools available don't cut it, and you're back to testdisk/photorec pretty quickly. which is a very thorough tool, but also very low level. and always work on a clone instead of the original.

and yes, parrot os really isn't the right distro for data recovery.
or, i mean it doesn't matter much which linus you use, as long as it's not on the same hard drive as the data you need to recover. but why torture yourself, surely this is easier with a dedicated live disk os, or plain ubuntu or...

Some examples are, in dowloading files testdisk/photorec 7.1, disk doctor,arax disk data recovery, space hound, reimage repair, handy repair, avg recovery - all of them seem corrupted in the nonsensical images presented on libre office due entirely from windows 1089 update that I am trying to recover before sending it off to Seagate.

The only software you mention in your last post that I am familiar with is testdisk and I don't really see what you're trying to say/do. You download testdisk and run it according to the instructions on their page which are very detailed, step by step instructions. Where does Libre Office fit into your scenario? Are you doing whatever you are doing from Parrot or windows? If your windows is corrupted in some way, you need windows tools.

Its from Parrot, Windows was removed completely. Being unfamiliar with the file system of Linux is one issue, the other is that downloads are not opening with the usual prompts. Libre Office only shows non-descript images that of course make no sense.

PS:
i forgot to say in my last post -
i think the best way to recover data lost on a windows filesystem is to use windows tools.

A problem which can easily be resolved from the comfort of your own home, if you have an internet connection. An online search in any browser for "linux system" should get you millions of hits such as the one below.

Once again you are being unclear. Downloads of what? You seem to have resolved your issue of the corrupt windows filesystem since you have removed it. If you download some software (testdisk) it should have at least minimal instructions on its use on the site from which downloaded. If it doesn't, not much point in trying to use it.

I still don't see what Libre Office has to do with this or why you are using it. Perhaps if you stated exactly what your end goal is you might get some assistance. If you like the 'look' of Parrot, you can probably get that with most other Linux systems. If you are insterested in learning computer forensics/ penetration testing, you would probably have more success with Kali since that is its sole purpose. If you go to the Parrot home page and compare it to the Kali home page, you will see that the documentation and FAQ link on Parrot have nothing while Kali has massive, detailed documentation.

Just a note that for the manual recovery of deleted NTFS files, I've found ntfsundelete to be a useful tool. Not so useful in the case of widespread corruption of a NTFS filesystem of course.
