I am still pretty new to Qubes. I have managed to create a new qube, but I want to install some software for use with this qube. I have read that it has to be installed to the template and not the actual qube. As the template has no actual network connection, how do I go about this?

Using 4.0.1, Fedora 29

Any help greatly appeciated.


pretty sure, there are different ways to skin the cat, though

the Templates are designed to obtain access indirectly, that is what the  "salt" stuff is they talk about ....it seems by default to be setup to use  sys-whonix-14  to  install updates  , somewhat magically

you can actually change the netvm without shutting down the templates

generally it's bad form  to give  the templates direct access,  though may you might want to once in while  in order  to troubleshoot something , etc  .....testing it the morning ,  you should be able to install non updates without  Direct  access

for me  Templates  aren't  worth backing up  , I'm not worried about my system  melting down  much ..... and anyway  its going to be best to fresh install , which is easy-ist  in Qubes, which is one of the beauties of the technology ....

hence, I clone for other reasons

one word of advice  is  keep a paper list of  custom  packages you install so when it goes to Fedora-30  you install fresh and then add back fresh packages ,  your files  will persist,

my problem  what few files I have end up spread out over  10 App Qubes

If  I do this :

echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt xenial main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/signal-xenial.list
deb [arch=amd64] https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt xenial main

then I do NOT need to add anything to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/qubes-r4.list ??


/etc/apt/sources.list   ??

for Debian-9  stretch ?
