First question why spicevdagent is in startup ? It’s virtualbox not kvm, why .ova image contain such thing ?
Second question. It’s not whonix related, but i hope to get answer here… On lxsession screenshot there is services that is checked for startup, but no name of the service, how i can find the names of these BLANK entries ?
