How about installing the latest firefox as a further customization?

Debian packages firefox-esr and changing the settings to turn off
video autoplay is very unfriendly compared to the latest versions of
firefox.  I'm installing the latest firefox in user space rather than
the templates because of the problems created by using qubes
persistence/userspace and firefox's built in updating method.   Any
suggestions how to do that with Debian DispVMs?

For the Fedora template yes, but I would have to repeat the process
every time for a new release of firefox in the Debian DispVM's.

[qubes-users] HCL Lenovo ThinkPad X390 Yoga

2019-10-12 Thread 'thenewgeek' via qubes-users
Hello,

I'm using Qubes R4.0.2 RC1. Had to tinker a bit to get everything working on 
this laptop/convertible with 8th Gen Intel processor. i.e.: ThinkPad Pen Pro.

It appears to be working fine for general use. Couldn't disable the Intel ME 
features from BIOS as coreboot is not supported yet, would be nice to use 
coreboot safely with me_cleaner in the future.

What works:
Touch Screen
WiFi
Keyboard backlight

What doesn't work:
Screen rotation is not working.

Not tested:
Bluetooth (didn't try to fix or look into it)
Smart card reader
NFC (I don't think that's necessary)

Hope this helps.

TheNewGeek

Is there a definite way to customize the default Firefox install in the DispVMs 
without launching it first in the TemplateVM (which I don't want to do for

I thought to add a prefs.js file to get rid of the Google search and other 
garbage that comes preinstalled and turned on in Firefox and which I have to 
manually turn off in preferences and about:config every time I start the DispVM 
(which gets tiring). However, apparently the profile folder is always generated 
under a different name and the new default profile I created doesn't get 
recognized.

How about this:

Create a qube, which has no netvm.
Open firefox - configure it as you will. (To install plugins, you wil
have to download elsewhere and copy them in to this qube to install)
Close qube.
Use `qvm-prefs qube template_for_dispvms True`
Set netvm for that qube.
Open disposableVM based on qube.
Profit.


Also, if you have an old profile that you want to re-use, you can edit 
~/.mozilla/firefox/profiles.ini to point to it.


E.g.:

[General]
StartWithLastProfile=1

[Profile0]
Name=default
IsRelative=0
Path=[full path to your profile.default]
Default=1

Also put your settings in user.js, not prefs.js. The latter is for 
internal firefox usage only and may be modified by firefox.


Btw a website with some nice firefox settings: privacy-handbuch.de

Re: [qubes-users] Re: Creating App Shortcut for a Single AppVM Doesn't Work

Hello Guerian,

I just fixed it myself. Turns out I was being stupid and forgot to add 
"[Desktop Entry]" in the first line of my kpxc-KeePassXC.desktop file, 
so this is purely my own mistake. :\ Anyway, thanks for your reply!

hope it helps

Hi,

I downloaded the AppImage version of KeePassXC, moved it to an Debian
10-based AppVM "kpxc", and wanted to create a dom0 startmenu entry
for
it. I followed the "If you only want to create a shortcut for a
single
AppVM..." part of the guide here:
https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/managing-appvm-shortcuts/
 , but after
completing the steps and rebooting, there is still no entry of
KeePassXC
under kpxc in the startmenu, and I couldn't figure out why. Here's
the
content of ~/.local/share/applications/kpxc-KeePassXC.desktop which I
wrote:

Version=1.0

Type=Application

Terminal=false

Name=kpxc: KeePassXC

GenericName=kpxc: Password Manager

Comment=Manage Passwords

Exec=qvm-run kpxc '~/Desktop/KeePassXC.AppImage'


Both dom0 and Debian template are updated to the lastest stable.

Any help would be appreciated!
