When I downloaded OnionShare as a guide from the Whonix wiki, the version of OnionShare is 2.2. The 2.2 version does not include the Chat function, so I want to install and use the 2.4 version, is there a way?
If installing (and digital software verification) from source code perhaps.
Not sure it was documented that way before. Maybe it’s still in the wiki history if it was.
For flatpak instructions (v2.4), see: Dev/OnionShare - Whonix
It is also possible to install using snap, or from the command line (make sure to verify PGP signature if using the command line):
OnionShare - Whonix mentions:
- Installation using flatpak is discouraged because it leads to Tor over Tor.
Quite likely having similar issues.
Flatpak installed OnionShare does not listen on all network interfaces but 127.0.0.1 only. It is therefore unreachable from Whonix-Gateway ™. This is because file
/usr/share/anon-ws-base-files/workstationdoes not exist inside the Flatpak folder.
Does the following help?
sudo mkdir /var/lib/flatpak/app/org.onionshare.OnionShare/current/active/files/share/anon-ws-base-files sudo touch /var/lib/flatpak/app/org.onionshare.OnionShare/current/active/files/share/anon-ws-base-files/workstation
