I installed a messaging app in whonix-ws-16 to message over Tor. Typically I use a Debian template for the messenger app but decided to use the whonix ws template for a more robust Tor connection.
The messaging app uses the default system font to display emojis. The current default whonix font is extremely limited. Even a simple displays as a white box.
Is the default whonix workstation font customized from within the VM template or is there a setting in dom0?
Is there a relatively secure way to install a custom font or should it be avoided?
The messaging app recommends the Linux-compatible “emojione” font. emojione/extras/fonts at master · joypixels/emojione · GitHub The install process appears to be relatively straightforward but I am concerned about possible security risks and unclear if it is the whonix template or another part of Qubes that needs to be changed.
