Ron's right - the use of angle brackets is a convention to show that a parameter is to be substituted by an actual value. You also see underscores used: _qube name_ Dont type them._ Similarly you will see optional arguments in square brackets: like this- qvm-start [options] <vmname> The options are, well, optional - and you type a VALUE for the vmname: qvm-start Ubuntu I hope that's clear - if it is you *should* be able to finally get the Ubuntu iso copied into dom0. Finally, you really need to look again at the Qubes documentation. You install Templates in dom0. So you will need to copy the Template you downloaded to dom0 and then install it there. If you do that you WILL see a template available which will allow you to create xenial qubes. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
