Kismet Folder (Non Nubie Question)

8 posts in this topic

Yo fellas.

Back story: I was running my 64bit laptop with a 32bit version of Ubuntu. Long story short I stepped my game up, Installed the 64bit ubuntu on my laptop. This isn't about the kismet.conf file!!!! I already have it.

My Problem.

I will install kismet through apt-get install kismet OR Symnaptic Package Manager. It does its thing and installs. The problem is I cant find the kismet folder. It should be in /usr/local/etc/ but it isnt. I do a file system search on kismet and returns nothing I do a locate command on kismet and get nothing. When I type the command kismet in the terminal, it begins to run then tells me to configure the conf file.

Where is the kismet folder?

Any help appreciated.

!!!!! I'm an idiot I got it. Thanks, though I know one of you l337's woulda helped me.

For future reference, dpkg -L <package name> will list all the files in a package

would

"whereis kismet"

have found it for you?

That's exactly what I perform to find the config file when I need it.

$locate

has been a long time favorite of mine because its fast. Just make sure that you either

$sudo updatedb

every now and again, or better yet, set it up as a cron job!
