Installed from kali repository

IIRC on Kali you need to use a specific _gvm user to all commands around GVM. Please lookup the manual of the Kali packages for more information.

can u give me a link?

Kali seems to have a documentation available at, you also might be able to find some more information in the /usr/share/docs subfolder of your Kali installation.

If unsure you can also ask at for additional support on the GVM packages provided by Kali.


I solved doing runuser -u _gvm – gvmd --get-users
