Hi, hoping to find a little bit of help here.
As the topic says, I am using Ubuntu Gnome 15.04 and all networking works fine with in that host system. I can surf the net, and even connect to TOR through the tor browser installed independently on Ubuntu.
I followed the instructions here: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/KVM#Install_KVM
…Installed qemu-KVM, libvirt-bin, virt-manager all smoothly and without any issues. I rebooted and continued, and when I got to the command:
sudo addgroup “$(whoami)” libvirt
I was told there is no such group called ‘libvirt’ But when I tried it using “libvirtd” instead, I was told I was already a member of that group. So I took this as success and continued.
After unpacking and installing Whonix Gateway and Workstation images successfully and following the rest of the instructions in import them to KVM, I started up the Gateway and found that it no access to networking whatsoever. The ‘whonixcheck’ routine failed over and over again to reach any network destination, even though the host Ubuntu system could do so easily. I restarted a few times, but no change.
Is there anything additional I need to be doing differently? I have seen references sometimes to extra tools used in Ubuntu, to set up “bridged connections” between the host system and KVM, but this is a bit out of my depth and I don’t want to start fiddling with such things without definite confirmation that I should be doing so.
Is there another step that I should do, or try, or check, to help discover what the problem is and fix it?
