Qubes-Whonix 15 TemplateVMs (Debian buster based) (4.0.1-201906232114) -- Testers Wanted!

Testers wanted!

Let’s test these templates!


Other Whonix platforms version 15:
See Whonix News Blog


Can whonix-15 builds prior to 4.0.1-201906232114 be upgraded in-place, or should they be re-downloaded? (for example, the initial whonix-15 build back in May).

I don’t remember any Qubes-Whonix 15 TemplateVM builds prior this. At least no call for testers where posted as far as I can see.

So not directly tested. But would probably work.

I keep upgrading my own TemplateVMs from version to version and it works. However, upgraded builds cannot be excepted the same quality as new builds (there could be some bugs specific to upgraded versions only) since it’s not feasible to test any ever released version to be upgraded to any new version.

If upgrades are received by the time these are up to date, chances are much better if you follow the herd. But upgrading from like Whonix 13 to Whonix 15 might work but cannot be tested by me.

  • running Thunderbird from terminal wont it (but running it with firejail it will work):

  • Error with Qubes Onion Repo with tor+http :

  • Whonix templates are not in qubes-templates-community (nor with -testing)

Mos likely not a Whonix specific issue. Icedove was renamed to Thunderbird. Hence ~/.icedove became ~/.thunderbird. Please read the actual error messages. It gives clues on how to resolve this issue.

unlink ~/.thunderbird

Or just do the profile folder migration manually.

Instructions https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Onionizing_Repositories#Onionize_qubes-r4.list_2 say use tor+http See bold text below.

deb [arch=amd64] tor+http://deb.qubesosfasa4zl44o4tws22di6kepyzfeqv3tg4e3ztknltfxqrymdad.onion/r4.0/vm buster main

Above screenshot uses http and onion only. That is not tor+http. Otherwise please contents of related sources.list file referencing Qubes onion.
