Great Job!!!

My testing notes:

  • is it important to have super user for ACW?

Applications Test results:

  • qTox better privacy/Tor compatibility Tips:

Open qTox then go to Advanced and scroll down to connection settings -> Then disable “Enable IPv6” & “Enable UDP” , change Proxy Type to SOCKS5 , Address to 127.0.0.1 , Port to 9101 (or isolated port for it connection)

  • Ricochet & Onionshare has an Onion grater issue in “Extend onion-grater Whitelist” instruction step mentioned in the wiki.
  • CoyIM has an issue of freezing up and not connecting (need to kill it in order to close it) upstream ticket:

TNT_BOM_BOM via Whonix Forum:

  • is it important to have super user for ACW?

Yes since it modifies root owned files. Abolishing user/root separation
(on gateway only) would be a separate discussion.

  • qTox better privacy/Tor compatibility Tips:

Open qTox then go to Advanced and scroll down to connection settings -> Then disable “Enable IPv6” & “Enable UDP” , change Proxy Type to SOCKS5 , Address to 127.0.0.1 , Port to 9101 (or isolated port for it connection)

Setting UDP will be futile. ( https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Tor#UDP )
Otherwise good idea.

  • Ricochet & Onionshare has an Onion grater issue in “Extend onion-grater Whitelist” instruction step mentioned in the wiki.

Fixed in wiki.

Great!

Fixed.

Fix in all buster repositories.

Actual ricochet connectivity test has not been done by me. Would be nice if you could test.

qtox:

IPv6 might even work. (See IPv6 tests in Tor Browser.)

(Above commit works for new builds only because it is in /etc/skel.)

Proxy settings cannot be applied by default. Related bugs:

We also cannot use torsocks, bug reported:

Add Workspace Switcher by default because if you open TBB and then open file manager and then press/hold the file manager top bar and go left of the screen then TBB page will disappear. it didnt disappear actually but the file manager window went to a new workspace. and in order to see all the work spaces you need to add workspace switcher plugin to the taskbar by default.

right click on the taskbar -> go to Panel -> Add New Items -> Workspace Switcher

then move the workspace switcher near to the browser icon (left) for better control.
