Signal

UNFINISHED!

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/signal-private-messenger/bikioccmkafdpakkkcpdbppfkghcmihk

On Debian stretch (based Whonix) the following workaround is required in order to use the Signal desktop app.

Open /etc/chromium.d/50_enable-remote-extensions in an editor with root rights.

If you are using a graphical Whonix or Qubes-Whonix, run.

kdesudo kwrite /etc/chromium.d/50_enable-remote-extensions

If you are using a terminal-only Whonix, run.

sudo nano /etc/chromium.d/50_enable-remote-extensions

Add

export CHROMIUM_FLAGS="$CHROMIUM_FLAGS --enable-remote-extensions"

Save and exit.

Done.

Start Signal from command line.

chromium --enable-remote-extensions --profile-directory=Default --app-id=bikioccmkafdpakkkcpdbppfkghcmihk
