Hi TNT_BOM_BOM

Works OK on my system. (stable-proposed updates) I’ll give this a try with stretch testers when I get a chance

Hi TNT_BOM_BOM

Can you check and see if you have meta-package qubes-whonix-gateway installed. I had no problems with whonix-gw-14 Stretch-Testers but had the same issue your having with whonix-ws-14. Installing qubes-whonix-workstation meta-package fixed this issue for me.

Installed already , but still the same:-
