Use virt-manager as a non-root user

According to doc

In some google guides i found that following steps are needed in addition .

Edit libvirtd configuration file to add group

Open the file /etc/libvirt/libvirtd.conf for editing.

sudo vim /etc/libvirt/libvirtd.conf

Set the UNIX domain socket group ownership to libvirt, (around line 85)

unix_sock_group = “libvirt”

Set the UNIX socket permissions for the R/W socket (around line 102)

unix_sock_rw_perms = “0770”

Restart libvirt daemon after making the change.

sudo systemctl restart libvirtd.service

Why are these steps not mentioned in Whonix documentation ?
