Deactivate uwt

From Whonix

On the Stream Isolation page, there is a list of applications that are pre-configured to use uwt wrappers. Follow the instructions below in order to disable this.

The following instructions permanently deactivate all uwt wrappers and remove stream isolation for uwt wrapped applications system-wide. Consequently, all uwt wrapped applications revert to the default system networking configuration.

If you want more granular control of uwt wrapper deactivation, see Stream_Isolation#Deactivate_uwt_Stream_Isolation_Wrapper.

Open file /etc/uwt.d/50_user.conf in an editor with root rights.

(Qubes-Whonix ™: In TemplateVM)

This box uses lxsudo for root privilege escalation and mousepad as editor. These are examples. Other tools could archive the same goal too. If these example tools do not work for you or if you are not using Whonix, please see this link.

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

lxsudo mousepad /etc/uwt.d/50_user.conf

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

sudo nano /etc/uwt.d/50_user.conf

Add.

Save and exit.
