Unable to run Etherape on Ubuntu 18.04

Etherape would not start as a root or non-root user on Ubuntu 18.04 with the error message:

GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid cast from ‘GtkLabel’ to ‘GnomeCanvas’

I found the answer as to why on the Parrot security forums:
https://community.parrotsec.org/t/etherape-not-working-since-last-update/813/5
This missing library was added with the command:

sudo apt-get install libgnomeui-0

Parrot 4 will not start LDM in Virtualbox

It seems that Parrot 4.0.1 does not contain a version of Virtualbox tools compatible with kernel 4.16. As a consequence, X will not start due to the lack of supported Kernel modules.

The fix, to install modules from the VirtualBox ISO, is detailed by Pavel at the following link:

Failed to start light display manager? - Community - Parrot Community:



When you obtain the failure message about lightdm, simply press ALT+F1 and log in there. then:
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get upgrade
  • sudo apt-get install build-essential module-assistant
  • sudo m-a prepare
Insert Guest Additions ISO
  • mount /media/cdrom
  • sudo sh /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
Reboot
