Copying files from minimal template

I’m trying to copy files from a minimal template to another AppVM, but I do not see such an option to do so in the dropdown menu. Are there any other packages I need to install, or a way to do it from the cli? I’m using Nautilus file manager.

You may find that option in the documentation: Minimal templates | Qubes OS

qubes-core-agent-nautilus: This package provides integration with the Nautilus file manager (without it, items like “copy to VM/open in disposable” will not be shown in Nautilus).



In dom0:

qvm-run -u root <your_template> xterm

An xterm window opens in your template. In that new xterm window:

qvm-copy /path/to/your/file

A prompt opens in dom0, asking you to specify the destination qube.
