QXL Slowness Fix


#2

#3

This actually works, why not to add this file to the image by default?


#4

Problem: in my whonix VM I can’t find this file. All I see are: 10-evdev.conf 10-quirks.conf 50-synaptics.conf and 50-vmouse.conf

I can’t find 50-qxl.conf in that folder

@the0 @LarryBird1

Package added and will be in Whonix 13.


#6

You are supposed to create that file. It’s the point of these instructions.


#7

Lol sorry my retarded question then, it wasn’t clear to me :slight_smile: created that file right now hope to fix my issues!

Hi,

I’ve just downloaded Whonix 13 and installed it in KVM, and noticed the same slowness as with Whonix 12. I searched for the file and couldn’t find it so I created it on both WS and GW. Everything is fine now.

@HulaHoop
Unfortunately it is not fixed in Debian yet. They are still waiting for the QXL maintainers to implement it.

#14

I checked the package metadata in Whonix Jessie and qxl-xorg-enhance is there. Maybe you forgot to update apt first.


#15

Thanks for the update. Its good news.

What the Debian devs are discussing here is the inclusion of the fix in Jessie’s next point release:

#16

And how to configure xorg.confs on Host OS?


#17

qxl-xorg-enhance package for Guest or for Host. I’m confused.


#18

Good day,

As far as I’m concerend, this should be applied to the guest.

Have a nice day,

Ego

And sudo ln -s /etc/apparmor.d/libvirt/TEMPLATE.qemu /etc/apparmor.d/libvirt/TEMPLATE.kvm ?


#20

And sudo ln -s /etc/apparmor.d/libvirt/TEMPLATE.qemu /etc/apparmor.d/libvirt/TEMPLATE.kvm ?

This is done on the host. I made the documentation more clear.


#21

It work for me only on the Guest (Whonix).
