I think you (or someone else) would have to put in the coding work in order to make this work in the desired way. However, a lot of work has already been done on the Archlinux Template (which, I assume, can be run as an HVM if desired, though I haven't tried it myself): https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/templates/archlinux/ Some work has also been done on an Ubuntu template: https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/templates/ubuntu/ There's also a more general workaround for the screen resolution issue (as well as a pointer regarding Qubes agents): https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/linux-hvm-tips/ - -- Andrew David Wong (Axon) Community Manager, Qubes OS https://www.qubes-os.org -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- iQIcBAEBCgAGBQJX3FmBAAoJENtN07w5UDAwUzYP/iitko2uLYmpHkn5TQ+Li1b4 PuZTJvQPgx7WBwXMcBFD9W2/Zznx7AlA21WgDCw3Zr98e2qeg1zOZkjVgrk2yP1X L3O28V2SIGqFos7ii/BcAb3mpmX6IohkQWb+EEoUZs4l9vVwFMisG54P8tPvDBEa uICZVlPHPQnfVTUhUd4wQ6fZn6a0ENUO08prHhF9cMGy02/tx6vz+CC/ZmjwFnau mHByFGczxAXkZlWZLuSUaNpu3kqj5gxufkno/Wo1GWVbVAj6V7oXIelkud6EjL44 RVUwb3jPXP0dFh5eoBZ7SZNckcjAadbHc9r0WhbfPnMH2AFFlZbT4zKQEhqs3RMA 11lK1anzIMTfXeiflTvy1meUyqVWCwVTDY2AU278N4LMkw+Mw7AJfrK2Qdbq7+PA MyNzrjCoBo58wDhOwHwU0Y72qruT4sXkEMQsuI+fvT3sVgih3rBzNnQ+wzk0Iw0X nXJek620iKvWn1CcQjE3j5EyMHzlZ46be+M+mutZVr0JNecaS73un5SblR+eGIf9 RHQXPIQZzEF70+K+1FPC2NQe5Ag8RTVBQKTy/iQ8pgIyeUnogHRHWk19npyJVWHV jRs5hQmJUqkyKpFHBNrhzp+e2e9oP2exlsV6vIGjQ8cg9rYjs1+b5IbXQ8PyeIWw X0qPTT7NTjcSsmXXmnI8 =exLY -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
