Apart from these hints, installing monero in Whonix does not differ from installing monero on any Linux based distribution.

Update your package lists.

sudo apt-get update

Install dependencies. [1]

sudo apt-get install libpcsclite1 qtbase5-dev qt5-default qtdeclarative5-dev qml-module-qtquick-controls qml-module-qtquick-xmllistmodel qttools5-dev-tools qml-module-qtquick-dialogs

Use Tor Browser, go to monero download page and download monero. [2] [3]

Hash check. Get the hash of the file you downloaded.

sha256sum linux64

Compare with SHA256 Hash (GUI) from the monero download page.


tar xvf linux64


cd ./monero-gui-*


Forum Discussion[edit]


After having installed monero, please consider making a donation to Whonix to keep it running for the years to come.

It is recommended to read the Money wiki page as it contains a lot related information on how to make anonymous payments.


  1. Package qtbase5-dev and the following packages are required if you want to use monero-gui.
  2. We avoid wget, since that does not enforce https.
  3. We avoid scurl, since there is no redirecting stable link. TODO: can probably be resolved by telling curl to follow redirects.
