madaidan added a comment to T582: revisit handling of /var/lib/dbus/machine-id.

The way it is now looks fine. Why would it need to be changed?

madaidan added a comment to T904: make sure there is no swap by default.

We need to re-check this for Whonix Host. Since it gets installed using calamares (which handles partitioning) there could be an unwanted swap partition.

Seems quite hacky. What's the root cause for failing?

https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/apparmor/2016-February/009371.html says it is used for various things so it might break some things.

Would it cause any issues if the machine-id was just deleted or replaced with a bunch of 0s?

madaidan added a comment to T729: network hardening.

My pull request enables all of these except martian packet logging which I doubt would be useful on Whonix.

madaidan added a comment to T770: Custom TBB profile for localhost access + Privoxy.

You can create directories in tor-browser_en-US/Browser/TorBrowser/Data/Browser/ called (profile_name).default. Here will be all the configurations for the profile. It should have a custom user.js with proxy settings using privoxy and setting network.proxy.no_proxies_on to 0.

madaidan added a comment to T795: Customized welcome page and bookmarks for I2P / Alt TBB (keyword: homepage).

Alternatively, you could change the home page to the program's interface e.g. 127.0.0.1:7657 for I2P and start the browser with a script that creates a popup box using zenity or similar that tells the user the information.

Maybe disable it just for package upgrades?

There is none. You can run swapon -s or cat /proc/swaps to verify.

No, I mean the upstream repository thunar-volman by XFCE developers.

Can you see from thunar-volman source code where defaults are configured? Would be good to watch for future versions.

Automounting can be configured in /etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/thunar-volman.conf
