wpapcap2john is available in GitHub source trees but is not "released". 
You can use hccap2john instead but then you need to first convert it to 
hccap using tools supplied with aircrack-ng - which presumably is 
available in Kali.

Something like this:

	1. wpaclean clean.cap original.cap
	2. aircrack-ng clean.cap -J clean.hccap
	3. hccap2john clean.hccap >
	4. john

Also, 1.7.9-jumbo-7 is ancient although unfortunately it's the latest 
release. If you checkout the bleeding-jumbo branch from GitHub or 
download a snapshot tarball and build it, you'll get wpapcap2john (which 
can read a pcap directly, omitting the two first steps above) as well as 
a LOT better and faster WPA cracking, with SSE/XOP/AVX support as well 
as some other *very* effective optimizations. Don't forget to enable 
OpenMP in Makefile before building.
