I made a bit of a mistake in the instructions.
Its not prefs
templates_for_dispvms true that prevents Tor Browser from starting.
Unfortunately not. I consider this an unclean implementation but for now
it’s the only possible way.
Its the dvm tag in the VM name
anon-whonix-dvm that prevents Tor Browser start.
Nitpick: Let’s please not call it a tag to avoid confusion with Qubes
tags. It’s the VM name ending
User would have to create an AppVM without dvm appended to the name.
That’s cheating. I don’t like that at all because in future we won’t
-dvm in VM name but use a proper check.
To avoid invalidating the instructions in future, I would prefer:
Manually starting Tor Browser while circumventing tb-starter
I could easily implement a command line option
--dvm-start or so to
torbrowser --dvm-start and starting Tor Browser in DVM
However, to start Tor Browser in a dvm, the instructions Patrick provided makes more sense IMO:
The path is different. So https://whonix.org/wiki/Tor_Browser#From_the_Command_Line_or_Debugging_Mode
Just now documented here:
