    Hi everybody!

    I'm totally new here. Nice to meet you buds he.
    I'm running kali on a laptop samsung NP-Q45 (no clue if this matters, but better write it than not). So here's the point: if I try to install Vbox following what is said here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads it doesen't really works. I mean, I, can't make it work. Honestly I don't even understand the 50% of what I'm doing. Once downloaded the .deb file for Debian 9 AMD64 (for example, is that right or should I download something else? I tried with Jesse as well but nope), I then add the line on /etc/apt/source.list and after that

    combine downloading and registering:
    wget -q https://www.virtualbox.org/download/oracle_vbox_2016.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    wget -q https://www.virtualbox.org/download/oracle_vbox.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -

    then I also

    apt-get install dkms

    and it's fine. But then everytime I try to

    apt-get install virtualbox

    I get this output:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    gsettings-desktop-schemas : Breaks: mutter (< 3.19.92) but 3.18.2-1 is to be installed
    libgnome-desktop-3-12 : Breaks: mutter (< 3.21.2) but 3.18.2-1 is to be installed
    E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.

    and this is the point where I say apt-get install help_what_the_fuckisgoingon

    I tried to install virtualbox-4.3 rather than 5.0 or 5.1 but the outputs are mostly the same.
    Tried to dpkg -i virtualbox___.deb file:
