Is the an up to date guide for configuring onionshare 2.6 in qubes-whonix

tried following the instructions on for configuring onionshare in whonix workstation but the terminoogy workstation (commonly called anon-whonix) is confusing.

is it possible to have an update guide to configure onionshare 2.6 in qubes-whonix because the names for whonix and qubes have change. really need it to work.

  • Read: anon-whonix
  • Think: Whonix-Workstation

If you see:

If using Qubes-Whonix™, complete these steps.

This this doesn’t apply to you if you’re not using Qubes-Whonix and/or don’t know what that is. Then you can also overlook anon-whonx.

In that case, for presumably Whonix for VirtualBox, the following instructions apply:

If using a graphical Whonix-Workstation, complete these steps.

Just follow these ones.

these are the steps that was done:

  1. add onion grater to gateway sys-whonix-1 ( not sys-whonix, because separate )
  2. add EXTERNAL_OPEN_PORTS+=" $(seq 17600 17659) " to anon-whonix user firewall settings ( network VM is sys-whonix-1 )
    save and reload from anon-whonix
  3. install onionshare in whonix-workstation-17-1 template

then open terminal in anon-whonix and type onionshare-cli --chat and got that error

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

the onionshare gui work with sys-whonix-1 but cannot see server onion address in whonix onion circuit panel. would prefer to use onionshare-cli --chat if possible

thank you
