The best method is to install from the repositories from your distribution if the software is available there.
So, first which Linux distribution are you using?
What is "NI multisim"?

please DO NOT resurrect a 3 year old thread

Kali is a special purpose OS
with only one real use

and as a general computing OS it is NOT

it is meant for one thing ONLY cracking networks ( hopefully done WITH IN THE LAW )

no you do not install circuit simulation software on it

use a better OS for General purpose uses

Debian 7.8
mint 17
ubuntu 14.10

ive personally faught to get multisim to run under Linux, best option is to run it in a VM as it will not install properly under wine and there is no direct linux port from the manufacture.

also after spending months looking for a comparable product that runs native under linux, there are none. there are a few hacked and broken linux copies of Pspice, but they do not match the power and functionality of Multisim. sorry.
