disable pulseadio in the workstation in addition to the gateway?

I noticed that pulseaudio was removed from the gateway. Has there been a fix found for pulseaudio/apparmor, perhaps something in “apparmor-profile-everything”? For those of use who don’t really play video and audio files, is there a way to disable/remove pulseaudio from the workstation? Thanks

Assuming you mean pulseaudio being used for sandbox escapes or other vulnerabilities, no. Pulseaudio access control is still a work in progress Access Control – Development Documentation – PulseAudio


sudo apt-get purge non-qubes-vm-audio alsa-utils pulseaudio pavucontrol

and disable audio in the VM settings.

For Virtualbox go to Settings → Audio → Enable Audio and un-tick it.

For virt-manager, go to the “i” symbol → Sound device → Remove.
