[graphical gui] Whonix Setup Wizard / Anon Connection Wizard - Technical Discussion


#342

tor-connection-wizard will be a more descriptive name!

I thought the reason why we did not do it earlier was because Tor trade mark concern? Is it resolved? If so, I am more than happy to see it being renamed!


#343

That’s the question. So you don’t remember having that permission? Hm. Could you create a torproject ticket for that please and cc arma (Roger) asking for that permission?


#344

Done!

#345

TODO:

  1. Getting anon-connection-wizard into menu so that user can start it through the menu. Currently, it can be start using sudo anon-connection-wizard, but it is not good in terms of usability.

  2. Document anon-connection-wizard in Whonix Wiki.

I guess you can copy/learn from whonix-setup-wizard.

  1. Document anon-connection-wizard in Whonix Wiki.

Yeah.

And somehow sorting out whonix-setup-wizard vs anon-connection-wizard as
discussed earlier.

Thank you very much for your instructions, @Patrick !

Done:


#349

I am not sure if I can do this myself. If not, could you please help me to create an empty anon-connection-wizard Wiki page, @Patrick?

Thank you very much for your help!


#350

Yes, new page creation is restricted to block spam (most spam bots use new page creation).

Page created:


#351

Thank you very much, Patrick!

Could you please help to create a template called “Anon_Connection_Wizard” please?

Or is it possible/okay to grant me some privilege to create templates? (I can definitely do a request every time I would like to create a page, but I do not want to consume your time too much. )


#352

https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Template:Anon_Connection_Wizard

Sure. You’re wiki admin now. Can create any page / template. However, edits go live instantly. I wouldn’t know quickly how to combine both.


#353

Thank you very much, @Patrick!

I did not notice that it will not be reviewed by you if I became the admin. I will keep a record of every change I made to the wiki. And please let me know if there is anything I write that is misleading. I am more than happy to correct it!


#354

Changes I made on Wiki:
https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Template:Start_Anon_Connection_Wizard

I actually have no idea if this is the correct step:

If you are using a graphical Whonix-Gateway, complete the following steps:
Start Menu -> Applications -> System -> Anon Connection Wizard

Could you please help to confirm that, @Patrick ?


#355

Done: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Anon_Connection_Wizard

I will add more necessary information and details to the page in the future.

Looks good.


#357

https://github.com/Whonix/anon-connection-wizard/blob/master/etc/anon-connection-wizard - This won’t work. File path has to be in /etc/sudoers.d folder.

https://github.com/Whonix/anon-connection-wizard/blob/master/etc/anon-connection-wizard - Could you please avoid using the asterisk * Please see:


#358

Could you please update https://github.com/Whonix/anon-connection-wizard/blob/master/man/anon-connection-wizard.8.ronn?


Added some packaging fixes to git master.


#359

Maybe we should not use sudo but use kdesudo.

https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Install_Software#GUI_Applications_with_Root_Rights

It’s not clear if this is still true. kdesudo certainly complicates things (dependencies). Could you research this please / ask on the Debian users mailing list if that advice is still required?


#360

Thank you very much for your valuable feedback, @Patrick !

I will be working on these issues!


#361

There were some anonymous edits improving the wording of the page.

And I added seo tags for oneboxing.
