another question about Qubes OS and trying to understand Cubes and cloning.
What do I want to do?
I like to install another program inside Whonix-ws-15, but I guess it does not make a difference, if this would be a fedora cube/template.
I like to create a clone, since I dont like to mess up the Whonix-ws-15 orginal setup.
Since I am new to Qubes OS, I would do the following (feedback is welcome):
I would clone the template “Whonix-ws-15” and give it a new name - let say “Whonix-ws-15-clone”
Inside this clone I will install the new software.
After that, I will create a new Application-Cube, lets say I call it “TestCube”.
The “TestCube” I would set up as:
Menu “create new cube”
Name and lable: TestCube
Type: Qube base on a template (AppVM)
Template: Whonix-ws-15-clone ->the newly one I created
Advanced: nothing check marked
Now that I have 2 Whonix-ws-15 templates, I have to update them separatly, right?
This way I can try out software etc. If I am done with it, I can always delete the “TestCube” as well as the template “Whonix-ws-15-clone” and still have my original setup of Cubes OS.
If there is a better solution or something I have to keep in mind, please let me know…still learning…
