I was able to dpkg my wingide program, but I'm having trouble installing it
 
Hi. I'm having trouble installing the WingIDE for python scripting on my Kali Linux distribution.

NOTE: please do not try to send me to the Kali Linux Forums. They've already refused to help me.

I downloaded WingIDE:
Code:

root@samkali:~/Downloads# ls
expressvpn-1.4.1-1.x86_64.rpm
expressvpn_1.4.1_amd64.deb
libqt4-webkit_4.8.6+git64-g5dc8b2b+dfsg-3+deb8u1_amd64.deb
tor-browser-linux64-7.5.1_en-US.tar.xz
wingide-personal5_5.0.9-1_amd64.deb
wingide-personal5_5.0.9-1_i386.deb


and depackaged it with the terminal:
Code:

root@samkali:~/Downloads# dpkg -i --ignore-depends=libqt4-webkit wingide-personal5_5.0.9-1_amd64.deb
(Reading database ... 338345 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack wingide-personal5_5.0.9-1_amd64.deb ...
Unpacking wingide-personal5 (5.0.9-1) over (5.0.9-1) ...
Setting up wingide-personal5 (5.0.9-1) ...
Processing triggers for menu (2.1.47+b1) ...


However, when I tried to finish installing it, it said that it's unable to locate the package:
Code:

root@samkali:~/Downloads# apt-get install wingide-personal5_5.0.9-1_amd64.deb
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree     
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package wingide-personal5_5.0.9-1_amd64.deb
E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'wingide-personal5_5.0.9-1_amd64.deb'
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'wingide-personal5_5.0.9-1_amd64.deb'


This is strange, because as shown in the output of my ls command of the Downloads directory above, I do indeed have the wingide-personal package. So what's going on?

Please read this: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ad-4175614092/

Kali is designed very specifically for one thing: pentesting. It's not for use as a desktop, not for use in software development, not for use in media editing or viewing/listening, not for use for anything but pentesting.

I've decided to use Idle instead of WingIDE. You can close this thread. Thanks for your responses.
