Install errors and no launcher menus


I’m trying to install the whonix-qubes binary package (10, v3.0.2) but the process leaves me with no launcher entries for whonix gateway and a list of errors[1]. This is on Qubes R2 that has been updated with the testing repos.

The last time I tried Whonix-Qubes it installed and worked pretty smoothly, but it was prior to release 10.

What can I do to get this working?

The installation seems to have completed. I ofter get those type of errors when installing templates.

Do you mean its not showing up in ques-manager or ‘Start’ menu?

Either way, maybe post on qubes mailing list since Marek may have an answer.

Its showing up in Qubes Manager and will run, but there is no trace of it in the ‘Start’ menu (the KDE Launcher).

I wasn’t sure which forum was appropriate for Whonix-Qubes issues. I’ll try the mailing list as you suggested.
