Continuing the discussion from Possible glitch in KDE menuing (and other menus too) for Qubes disposable templates:
I could use some thoughts or maybe some guidance on if this is a bug. Using @unman’s recommendation to use
True instead of
1 solved the issue. However, I only needed to do this for one of the two new disposable VM templates. I am using the stock XFCE desktop environment, not KDE.
In creating two Fedora 38 disposable templates, I encountered inconsistent results Same commands, different templates, different outcomes.
I was following the guidance from creating a new disposable template. So, after creating the two Qubes template VMs, I ran the suggested three commands for the disposable template VMs:
[user@dom0 ~]$ qvm-create --template <TEMPLATE> --label red <DISPOSABLE_TEMPLATE> [user@dom0 ~]$ qvm-prefs <DISPOSABLE_TEMPLATE> template_for_dispvms True [user@dom0 ~]$ qvm-features <DISPOSABLE_TEMPLATE> appmenus-dispvm 1
Qubes Template → Disposable Template Name → outcome following the above were the following:
fedora-38-dvm→ success, everything appeared as expected
f-38-custom-dvm→ partial, no AppMenu entry but it is listed as an option for “disposable template” in the Qubes Global Settings GUI.
Switching to use
True resolved the AppMenu issue for
qvm-features <DISPOSABLE_TEMPLATE> appmenus-dispvm True
Differences between the two:
fedora-38-dvmis based on a fresh install of
fedora-38from the Qubes repo.
f-38-custom-dvmis based on an in-place upgraded Fedora 36 template, which has additional software installed, and correctly showed in the AppMenu.
