scurl: SSL Command Line Downloader[edit]

To securely download files or webpages from the Internet on the command line, scurl is pre-installed in Whonix ™. scurl should be preferred over wget, since the former enforces strong encryption and is less buggy.

To invoke scurl to download a file, use the following syntax and replace the example URL with the file's location.

scurl https://dist.torproject.org/torbrowser/9.5/tor-browser-linux64-9.5_en-US.tar.xz

This will download tor-browser-linux64-9.5_en-US.tar.xz to the current working directory.

Refer to the scurl entry for further examples and a complete description of this tool.

Additional Software[edit]

If the recommendations in this section are unsatisfactory, additional applications can be easily installed in a few steps; see Install Software.

Footnotes[edit]

  1. Florence homepage [archive]:

    It is useful when a real keyboard is unusable either because of a handicap, disease, broken keyboard or tablet PC; but when a pointing device is usable. Florence stays out of your way: it appears on the screen only when needed. An auto-click functionality also help people having difficulties to click buttons.

  2. The Assistive Technology Service Provider Interface (at-spi2-core [archive]) is apparently a Florence dependency, since in testing it did not work without this package.
  3. Non-Qubes-Whonix ™ means all Whonix ™ platforms except Qubes-Whonix ™. This includes Whonix ™ KVM, Whonix ™ VirtualBox and Whonix ™ Physical Isolation.
  4. See also: RecordMyDesktop in Wikipedia with screenshot [archive].
  5. However, unrestricted access to the large number of codecs, along with the gstreamer and ffmpeg frameworks can expose the system to remote attacks. The risk is greater than with Tor Browser because the latter attempts to restrict codecs to a particular subset. No cookies are stored by VLC and no information is collected and sent to third parties [archive]; see the Original Whonix forum thread [archive].
  6. https://forums.whonix.org/t/use-sudoedit-in-whonix-documentation/7599 [archive]
