Works for me in Qubes Debian based VM.

Remove eventually old copies of it.

(I prefer using trash-put because if you are using rm and mess up adding a space ~/ sandbox then you end up deleting your whole home folder.)

trash-put ~/sandbox
trash-put ~/.local/share/sandboxed-tor-browser

Trying to upgrade the old version failed for me.

2017/01/25 10:19:34 launch: Failing with error: dynlib: Failed to find library: libasan.so.2

Didn’t investigate since starting to use the new version worked for me.

For your convenience:

  • wget https://dist.torproject.org/torbrowser/7.0a1/sandbox-0.0.3-linux64.zip
  • wget https://dist.torproject.org/torbrowser/7.0a1/sandbox-0.0.3-linux64.zip.asc
  • gpg --recv-keys "EF6E 286D DA85 EA2A 4BA7 DE68 4E2C 6E87 9329 8290"
  • gpg --verify sandbox-0.0.3-linux64.zip.asc
  • unzip sandbox-0.0.3-linux64.zip

Don’t forget the Qubes workaround.

sudo umount /prox/xen

Start.

cd sandbox
./sandboxed-tor-browser

Works also in the development version of Whonix on my disk so chances are very good this will work in Whonix 14.

Nice! I’ll have to test v0.0.3 in a Debian template soon.

Of course, mine will be the ‘dummy’ test, since I am no developer… :slight_smile:


#45

I updated the instructions regarding dependencies, 64-bit version etc which is awaiting sign-off here:

#46

This may or may not be relevant i.e. new config settings (?):

Sec. “Using a system-installed Tor process with Tor Browser” in start-tor-browser needs update

#47

I guess it will work. anon-ws-disable-stacked-tor supports almost any Tor configuration system Tor or TBB Tor. Due to time restraints, I can only test this once the next release is out. (The only thing that won’t work is writing to /etc/tor/torrc or TBB torrc.) Applying the patch manually / building oneself is very time intensive.
