I loaded virtual box, (on linux mint), with a whonix gateway and workstation, (not sure what linux version that is), and when I try unzipping a rar file it always comes up blank. The rar files have PW’s on them, and I’m not sure if that is making a difrence or not. It will open zip files with PW’s so I’m not sure why it is now showing rar’s as blank.
I’ve tried various commands such as:
sudo apt-get install unrar-free
(which got me from (archive manager can’t open rar’s to now rar’s are empty)
I also tried installing p7zip full, along with:
sudo apt-get install p7zip-rar
I thought that would give the gui version of it, which I’d prefer. Is it possible to get a gui version of p7zip?
I assume something went wrong on the install of unrar, and I’ve been trying to figure out how to remove it and re-install it. I haven’t removed software yet so I’m a little nervous about blowing away the wrong thing without realizing it.
Thanks in advance.
Thanks for the links to the information. Sorry I didn’t include more details in my post. In response to your questions:
The installs of whonix gateway and workstation appeared to be successful. I can browse tor via the workstation successfully. I’m not sure how to verify that it’s actually going out over tor, but the link on the workstation’s desktop to install tor worked, and I can visit onion sites so I assume that was a success.
I’m trying to do everything in the workstation. I’m doing nothing on the gateway other than starting it. The host is linux mint. I haven’t done much on the host after learning about whonix.
