I would have to say this is outside of the scope of Ubuntu Studio. We 
only support adding Ubuntu Studio onto Ubuntu and its flavors via 
Ubuntu Studio Installer, which you can find the instructions for at 
It does all of the configuration the old wiki documents did 

Any documentation that is on the site that adds Ubuntu Studio to an 
existing Ubuntu installation is severely outdated except for the page 
about Ubuntu Studio Installer.

We don't support adding Ubuntu Studio to Kali Linux or any other 
distribution outside of Ubuntu and its flavors. Remember, Ubuntu Studio 
is Ubuntu, not a separate distribution.
