    I am trying to install Parallel tools on a clean load of a Debian derivative that is running the 4.17 Linux kernel. Even with the 4.17 kernel headers installed the installation scripts keep trying to install the 4.15 kernel headers.

    Tried this with Kali running the 4.17 kernel and did not have any luck.

    Same problem here on kali 2018.2 . I tried the steps from the suggested article, but it doesn't work. I got the following error:

    root@kali-vm:/# apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) make gcc dkms kpartx
    Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig
    Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut.
    Statusinformationen werden eingelesen.... Fertig
    E: Paket linux-headers-4.15.0-kali2-amd64 kann nicht gefunden werden.
    E: Mittels des Musters »linux-headers-4.15.0-kali2-amd64« konnte kein Paket gefunden werden.
    E: Mittels regulärem Ausdruck »linux-headers-4.15.0-kali2-amd64« konnte kein Paket gefunden werden.


    Please help @Arun@Parallels

    I followed the posted instructions. After the Parallels Toolbox installation completes, the directories from the host OSX are mounted. However, when I restart Kali Linux, the display manager doesn't start no matter if i use the Gnome or the XFCE distribution.

    Ok, I fixed this:

    After a fresh installation of Kali Linux XFCE, open a terminal and enter
    apt-mark hold xserver-xorg-core
    then
    apt update && apt full-upgrade
    then reboot
    then

    apt-get install dkms kpartx printer-driver-postscript-hp
    reboot

    then
    In Parallels click Install Parallel Tools
    then

    mount -o exec /media/cdrom0
    cd /media/cdrom0
    ./install
    reboot

    Now everything is working fine. So the problem is with the updated xserver in Linux 4.17
