Qubes/Disposable VM


Disposable VM usage is still considered experimental since there are various #Issues!

You can use Whonix-Workstation as a Disposable VM. This is not yet amnesic. [1]

Open a dom0 terminal.

Qubes App Launcher (blue/grey "Q") -> System Tools -> Konsole

Create a DispVM savefile.

qvm-create-default-dvm whonix-ws


Enable showing your DispVM in Qubes VM Manager.

dom0 -> Qubes VM Manager -> (menu) View -> enable 'Show/Hide internal VMs'

dom0 -> Qubes VM Manager -> enable 'Show/Hide inactive VMs'

Configure Whonix-Gateway as your NetVM.

dom0 -> Qubes VM Manager -> right click on 'whonix-ws-dvm' -> VM Settings -> NetVM -> sys-whonix
