Hello all: A newbie here.
I have been using Sleuthkit for some time but definitely wanted to try and work Autopsy and its modules.
I am running a VirtualBox 6.0 on a Mac laptop and working within the latest Kali Linux update.
I followed the clear steps outlined for Linux install but when I launch Autopsy a big window opens up with the menus and it is blank. I can see and pull down the menus but I never see the opening screen for creating new cases etc.
I am unable to do anything with this screen.
I have Autopsy 4.14.0 on Kali Linux and Java 1.8.0_242-b07
The only 2 ways I feel I have deviated from the install instructions is:
- Instead of java build 1.8.0_232-BellSoft-b10 I have the newer Java 1.8.0_242-b07
- Instead of installing sleuthkit-java_4.7.0-1_amd64.deb from Git, I elected to go with the newer Sleuth Kit 4.8.0
Can anyone tell me if by downloading newer Java build and the newer sleuthkit 4.8 I have created a problem?
Do I somehow need to revert to the earlier version of Java and the Sleuthkit version.
