Blackarch post-install help?

Greetings. So I’ve installed Garuda (again), and while configuring it using Setup-assistant I added Blackarch repo. Now It might be a dumb question but how do i add the toolkit for pentesting from Blackarch? I mean how do I download them all for once?

Hi @Firstoften, I moved your topic to Issues & Assistance because you are asking for help with something.

If you have the Blackarch repository configured I believe you can install all the tools with:

sudo pacman -S blackarch

Last time I checked there were a few conflicts with a stock install when trying to install all tools. If that is still the case you will need to resolve those before installing all tools can succeed.

Alternately, instead of installing all the tools you can install just the ones you need. To list all of the available tools:

pacman -Sgg | grep blackarch | cut -d' ' -f2 | sort -u

To see the tool categories:

pacman -Sg | grep blackarch

To install a category of tools:

pacman -S blackarch -<category >
