Skipping Whonix Postinst Scripts
Skipping Postinst Scripts
Advanced users only!
Let's say for example you don't like the
/usr/share/whonix/postinst.d/70_desktopicons postinst script creating Desktop icons each time an update from Whonix apt repository comes.
Once you identified which postinst script you don't like, just run
export WHONIX_BUILD_SKIP_SCRIPTS+=" 20_sanity_checks "
before running "
Or you could add them to the
WHONIX_BUILD_SKIP_SCRIPTS environment variable separated by spaces to
WHONIX_BUILD_SKIP_SCRIPTS="70_desktopicons 70_knetattach 70_whonix_apt_key"
/etc/environment, you need to reboot.
In case this feature is of interest to you, a solution for not requiring reboot and adding them to a config file in
/etc/whonix.d could be easily and quickly added. Just make a feature request in that case.
