HulaHoop added a comment to T720: post feature request for more secure clipboard sharing against VirtualBox and KVM.

Issue was discussed by Libvirt devs on RedHat bugzilla:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1320263#c4
I even linked to a secure clipboard proposal that would have given a secure clipboard functionality by copying Qubes style interaction. It went no where and was closed as WONTFIX.

There is one issue with installing xpra:

  • it will install xpra browser (unwanted in Whonix)
  • also it has ability to connect to an outside xpra servers (unwanted in Whonix)

    launch xpra GUI or from terminal and you will find all these stuff.

mig5 added a comment to T895: Proposed Download Directory Structure.

Another approach might be to use Nginx redirects (and a shell script or something, to maintain changes as new versions come out), so that URLs like https://download.whonix.org/ova/current/Whonix-XFCE-current.ova redirect to https://download.whonix.org/ova/14.0.1.4.4/Whonix-XFCE-14.0.1.4.4.ova . Useful?

Since we no longer install any KDE applications by default (such as dolphin; ark), no dependency pulls phonon anymore so in extension nothing pulls vlc anything anymore. Therefore this is no longer needed.
