Hello ,

when I tried to install nitroshare using :

sudo apt-get install nitroshare
[sudo] password for adithyan:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
Package nitroshare is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'nitroshare' has no installation candidate

Then i realise that it is not present in kali repository

So I tried to install it using the .deb package
I got some dependency error:

dpkg -i nitroshare_0.3.3-1+b1_amd64.deb
Selecting previously unselected package nitroshare.
