Hello IntersolarMN, Welcome to Qubes. I'm not quite clear on what your problem is, but let's start with the basics. LibreOffice - you should install this in a template, and then it will be available in each qube based on that template. Assuming that you have the standard templates installed, it's just a matter of opening Software for the fedora-23 template and installing it there. When you restart your work qube you should find that LibreOffice is available. If not, please provide more details of changes you have made to the defaults and the templates you are using. On the USB question, the critical point is what you mean by "after mounting it". Assuming that you installed with a sys-usb, when you insert a USB drive it will be attached to the sys-usb qube. You need to then attach the device to the qube you want to work in: you can do this using the manager or the command line, qvm-block tool. Once you have attached the device to your "work" qube, it will be present as /dev/xvdi, and you should then mount the device in that qube. Once you have done so you will find that you can see the USB contents available in the "work" qube. I hope this is clear. If you have done all this and it isn't working, please provide a more detailed account of what you have done and what templates you are using, and exactly what errors you see. Sometimes it takes time to get used to a new OS, and the security structure of Qubes adds a few extra wrinkles, but stick with it, and everything will become second nature. unman -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
