Installing Autopsy 4.8.0 with sleuthkit-java_4.6.2-1_amd64.deb
With the package comes the instruction file ‘Running_Linux_OSX.txt.” We basically follow this document with a few exceptions.
Step 1 – Add Java 8 PPA
The instructions that come with Autopsy 4.8.0 advise you to follow the instructions at medium.com/coderscorner …. I replaced the first four steps with the instructions at https://tecadmin.net/install-java-8-on-debian/ because the ones at coderscorner did not work.
Then return to step 5 on coderscorner and carry on to the end.
Step 2 – Install Sleuthkit
When attempting to install slethkit using the command
sudo apt-get install ./sleuthkit-java_4.6.2-1_amd64.deb
I received an error about a conflict with libtsk13. Reading a note from Brian Carrier online encouraged me to
remove this thing:
sudo apt-get remove libtsk13
Then I tried to reinstall sleuthkit … success!
Now follow the rest of the instructions in Running_Linux_OSX.txt.
