It ended up being due to the disposal VMs for each AppVM not being set properly. Figured it out by running a qvm-run command manually, such as: qvm-run -q -a --service --dispvm=personal -- qubes.StartApp+org.gnome.Terminal returning: Refusing to create DispVM out of this AppVM, because template_for_dispvms=False Once I corrected the DispVM option, rerunning the command produces no error, but still nothing happens. Maybe the services aren't working within the VM? Thanks, Andrew Morgan -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
