if you want to download the main gnome and then build it from there you are ok to do that and waist your time
but if you have already a version of linux like ubuntu or mint or … you can see how we do it. you can see the main document here. In this example we will build the 64 bit kde version
and add these lines:
deb http://ftp.it.debian.org/debian wheezy main deb-src http://ftp.it.debian.org/debian wheezy main deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free
save it and the do
apt-get update apt-get install git live-build cdebootstrap kali-archive-keyring git clone git://git.kali.org/live-build-config.git
then edit the live-build-config/config/package-lists/kali.list.chroot
and when you see this:
# Graphical desktops depending on the architecture # # You can replace all the remaining lines with a list of the # packages required to install your preferred graphical desktop # or you can just comment everything except the package of your # preferred desktop.
delete every thing after and add this:
#if ARCHITECTURES i386 amd64 # *** GNOME DESKTOP *** kali-defaults kali-root-login desktop-base kde-plasma-desktop #or if laptop kde-plasma-notebook #endif #if ARCHITECTURES armel armhf # *** XFCE DESKTOP *** xfce4 network-manager-gnome network-manager-kde network-manager #endif
cd live-build-config dpkg --add-architecture amd64 lb config lb config --architecture amd64 lb build
befor doing lb build make sure that you have some time to wait for it and a internet connection because it will build the iso for you.
done! you will have your iso if nothing goes wrong
