[qubes-users] Fedora Desktop in Qubes

2016-12-21 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Hi, I saw some threads on this but am not clear at a high level. I thought I would install dropbox client on one of my Fedora VMs so that working with files is much smoother than from a browser. So, is installing a Fedora Desktop the best plan to do that? Don't assume I know enough of native

In the end, I made it work and Qubes boots now on the P50. It's taken way more effort than I'd have thought though, but the cause was my lack of knowledge on how to get there; the necessary changes were in the Documentation. In case anyone else hits a similar wall with a P50 in the near future,
