Running IDA Evaluation Version on Kali Linux 2016.1 64-bit

The IDA Evaluation Version previously came installed with Kali Linux 1.0, but since the upgrade to 2.0 and now Rolling Edition, IDA is no longer present.  Since the evaluation version is available as 32-bit binaries only, getting it running requires figuring out the rather large set of dependent 32-bit libraries that must be installed on Kali 64-bit.

For a quick fix, run the following commands:

$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-0:i386 libx11-xcb1:i386 libxi6:i386 libsm6:i386 libfontconfig1:i386 libqt5gui5:i386

Now IDA should successfully execute from the CLI and give you a graphical window to accept the IDA License Agreement.

~/Downloads/idademo69$ ./idaq

How to determine what libraries are missing and which packages provide them involves the iterative process of:
  1. Check for missing shared objects
  2. Check which package provides them
  3. Install that package
For example:

~/Downloads/idademo69$ ldd idaq | grep "not found" => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found
~/Downloads/idademo69$ dpkg -S
libxext6:amd64: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
libxext6:amd64: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
~/Downloads/idademo69$ sudo apt-get install libxext6:i386
