Qubes-Whonix – Testers Wanted!

Qubes-Whonix only!

Either start with fresh templates. I.e. uninstall qubes-template-whonix-gw and qubes-template-whonix-ws. Then, to install, run in dom0:

sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-dom0-unstable qubes-template-whonix-gw qubes-template-whonix-ws

Or you can also upgrade from Whonix testers repository. Please refer to the following instructions:

Patrick started developing Whonix, the Anonymous Operating System in 2012, when quickly others joined efforts. He collected experiences working pseudonymous on Whonix for two years, enjoys collaboratively working on privacy preserving software.

  1. Yes, upgraded successfully now. Thank you for the help.

  2. Known issue: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/762167
    Solution (works): install gtk2-engines-pixbuf (629 KB on disk)
    No idea what that is or if it’s safe. Package is present in Whonix-12 Workstation.

  3. Adwaita

    To my untrained eye, Adwaita & Raleigh look identical (maybe they’re both not installed?), and neither looks right without gtk2-engines-pixbuf.

    However, oxygen-gtk seems to look “normal” even without gtk2-engines-pixbuf. (Still generates message: Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap")

    So another solution is to switch theme to oxygen-gtk. I think
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme "oxygen-gtk"
    should work but I can’t test it with a dispVM. Will try some other time.

  4. Yes.

    However, templates are never upgraded by qubes-dom0-update by [the sane] Qubes default. So if you have Whonix already installed and want to do a new re-installation from the repository, you have to uninstall the template rpm packages first.
