Dev/Installation from Repository

From Whonix

< Dev

An installation of Debian can be transformed into Whonix ™ or Kicksecure ™. Also known as proverbial "sudo apt-get install whonix". This is also called distro-morphing. [1]

The following meta packages:

  • non-qubes-whonix-gateway-cli
  • non-qubes-whonix-gateway-xfce
  • non-qubes-whonix-workstation-cli
  • non-qubes-whonix-workstation-xfce
  • kicksecure-cli
  • kicksecure-cli-vm
  • kicksecure-xfce
  • kicksecure-xfce-vm

can be installed on Debian as per instructions Whonix ™ Packages for Debian Hosts.

This is unsupported, not tested by any Whonix ™ contributors and might need some work. What's missing?

This is being used in the wild. [archive]

From Source Code[edit]

Above instructions use packages from Whonix ™ binary repository. Transforming Debian to Whonix ™ or Kicksecure ™ is also possible from a local APT repository, i.e. without touching Whonix ™ binary repository. If you want to install from source code, info and scripts for automation (package building, creating a local repository, installation) are available [2] [3] [4] but could use better documentation.
