Hi, it happens to be that I have the same problem as you guys (which is how I found this thread) AND happen to be turkish . So first of here is the correct link: http://kali-linuxtr.net/konu-parall...lels-tools-un-kurulmasi-ve-visible-mouse.html I got the link by just googling the thread name with a little guessing and reverse engineering the meaning of it "Parallels Desktop ile Linux Kali kurulduktan sonra" You can use google translate but I can also translate it myself and you can compare yourself and see how good google translate is when it comes to turkish. Greetings friends, I wanted to share with you the solution to the problem with installing Parallels Tools and the hidden mouse cursor that occurs after installing Linux Kali on Parallels Desktop. I have done a lot of research on this matter and if there are any friends among us that have the same problem, this post will help you to solve it. Operating system: OS X EL Capitan 10.11.5 Parallels Desktop: 11.2.0 32581 Linux Kali : 2016.1 (Linux Kali 4.6.0-kali1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.6.2-2kali2 (2016-06-28) x86_64 GNU/Linux) (copy paste is so good) (1. to 5 is basically just downloading kali and installing it on Parallels.) 6. Open Terminal and type "nano /etc/apt/sources.list" . Make sure that you have following line in it "deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free" . If not add it. (This was missing for me. Hence the apt-get didnt do much before. I think thats maybe because I didnt choose network mirror when installing but only cdrom) 7. Open Terminal and type these commands apt-get clean apt-get update apt-get upgrade -y apt-get dist-upgrade -y apt-get install dkms kpartx printer-driver-postscript-hp 8. After the installations have finished , reboot your virtual machine. Kernel was updated in this process. 9. Click the install Parallel Tools button on the upper right (yellow symbol) 10. After this a CD Rom will be mount. copy its contents to the a new Folder on the Desktop Then open Terminal cd /root/Desktop chmod -R 777 FOLDER_NAME to give/change rights 11. cd FOLDER_NEW to enter the Folder and then ./install to run the installation process 12. After the installation of Parallel Tools is completed. The Virtual machine will reboot and the mouse cursor will have disappeared. To make the mouse visible 13. Open Terminal 14. mkdir /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ to ceare the folder 15. cd /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ to enter the folder 16. ln -s /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-prlmouse.conf . (there is a period in the end , do not forget) 17. after this type reboot to restart the machine and the mouse cursor will be visible again I hope this helps I hope that the new Parallels Desktop Update will fix this and this guide will no longer be needed. But until then this will be the solution. and the source. I had to rush it towards the end. Gotta go. I hope this helps. And cheers to this guy. He is my hero PS: I had to delete all the turkish quotes, because it said english only. Kind of sad that turkish is banned.
