    I recall reading somewhere that they haven't got that sorted yet. You'll have to do an override, I think.
    Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".

    there is not much use to what you're trying to achieve. The ubuntu repositories will add just a slight minimal amount of tools existing in bt4. Many of them are not installed from the repositories, so your best bet will be to just use bt... and why not?

    You have it backwards, he want's to add the BT repo to a normal Ubuntu install.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Which is something the devs do not want done. We dont need all kinds of ubuntu dorks leeching the repo.

    I do know that the dev don't want to have "ubuntu dorks" leeching the repos. But it will happen sooner or later, and rather sooner since I found my way out. I also know that most of the software are only installed on BT and not in the repos (wich is logical). But I was only wondering, if we were able to do it. Wich we are, since the key is in the repo.

    Anyway, doing this may cause conflict on updates with software previusly install such as zenmap. And the point of doing that, is only to get updates on some of the software that I was already using with ubuntu.

    By browsing in the repo, I also found out a script to add the repo in your software manager. Name o the script is setup.sh

    I also found anoter script that install ALL (wich is not recommand), name of the script is install-all.sh
