I just did the usual apt-get update/dist-upgrade. I received no warnings of any kind, everything ran smoothly. After completion I now have two “Tor Browser (AnonDist)” icons on my desktop. One points to “/usr/share/applications/janondisttorbrowser.desktop”, the other points to “/usr/share/applications/anondist-torbrowser.desktop”.
This obviously worried me. However, they both execute the same command; “torbrowser %u”. The question, then, in my (admittedly inexperienced) mind, is this: Did the update change anything about the tor browser program, or have I just received a harmless but useless additional icon… I can’t find any logs of what was updated.
I’m entirely new to whonix and thought it was worth asking if I should be concerned about this. I’m considering shredding the vm and installing a fresh one.
