Long Wiki Edits Thread


Can someone please add a parameter for the signing key link [0] so I can redirect KVM users to this link instead: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/KVM#Verify_the_Whonix_images

[0] https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Template:DownloadTable


Could you please clarify:

  • The current “Verify the images using the Signing Key” on that page would only then be for VirtualBox (using Patrick’s key)?

  • The KVM images can only be verified using your key i.e. not Patrick’s

So I would change the current “Verify the images using the Singing Key” to something like:

VirtualBox users should Verify the images using this Signing Key
KVM […]


Yes and yes. I could make the signing key statement longer but it might make the table look unsightly and confuse users. That’s why I think a template parameter I can change to my link is better.



Made those changes to the DownloadTable. Let me know if you need anything else.

You may want to tweak it a little?




The edits that were previously made to ( https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Template:DownloadTable ) broke the table.

Looks like this edit (or another recent one) broke some of the download links?

I’ll see if I can fix it.

Edit: Ok looks like the variables are not yet defined. Have to wait until then I guess?


https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Template:DownloadTable works for me. Not directly but all pages using it (listed here: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:DownloadTable).

For example https://www.whonix.org/wiki/VirtualBox_Testers_Only_Version/XFCE (fully functional) sets variables and calls https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Template:VirtualBox which can calls https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Template:DownloadTable.

https://www.whonix.org/wiki/KVM calls https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Template:DownloadTable directly. Also functional.


So when I hit Download (v3 onion)

Ok, I was referring to ‘directly’ so this is not a problem. :slight_smile:


Perfect. Thanks @0brand.


Electrum now installed from stretch-backports.



Additional resources were added to the Support page.



new wiki page:

https://github.com/Whonix/qubes-whonix/blob/master/usr/share/uwt/qubes_torfied_dom0.txt links to this wiki page in case of dom0 configuration errors.


new FAQ entry:


Nice! :slight_smile:


If Thunderbird default install is not going to be reinstated then adding “apt-get install thunderbird enigmail” is needed? (on the wiki)


Yes, I’ll take a look around and find the page(s) that need those instruction. Maybe a few pages can have that in a footnote.


Updated Encrypted Email with Thunderbird page. Install thunderbird and enigmail was added. Though it would be best for users to try to install instead of trying to figure out if the packages are installed. Most users would get confused imo.

Whonix Warrant Canary subheading added. Not sure if this is the correct spot on the page for it.



Fixed the format error in “Comparison with Others” . Not sure who made the edit but is there a reference that Tails can be configured with persistent entry guards?


BTW I make errors often enough so its no big deal. :wink:


On the contrary, looks like not implemented.



Right back at ya! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
