Anon Surf > check MAC - Doesn't Display

Parrot Security 4.1

When I try to check my MAC address from the Applications menu by selecting

Anon Surf > check MAC

It launches and diappears in the blink of an eye.

When I run it from the command line, it sort of works; but doesn’t look nice. It also changes the MAC address, instead of just displaing it.

I was able to repair this by drilling down into //home/user/.local/share/applications and modifying the code in “check MAC.desktop.” I modified the code to read:

[Desktop Entry]
Exec=/usr/bin/anonsurf mymac
Name=check MAC
Comment=Print the current MAC address

I don’t know if this was the best solution; but it’s working correctly now.

You can always open a terminal and to write in it: sudo macchanger --show wlan0 (replace with the interface you want to know).
