2017-02-04 Thread Loren Rogers
Hi all, I'm confused about running disposable VMs - if I open a browser or file viewer, then want to open a terminal for the same VM, how could I do this? (E.g. I want to view an untrusted file, then make some edits.) Is there a way to configure the default disposable VM in the Qubes menu? I

Hi all, I've attached a hardware report for an Asus G750JW. I can say that Qubes appears to run just fine overall, but with a few limitations. The most important is the wifi -- the Broadcom unit installed isn't supported, so no wifi out of the box. Somewhat annoying, but workable, is the
