How to use clipboard between HVMs

Hey guys,

I’ve been using Qubes as my daily OS for about 2 years. There is one thing I still couldn’t figure out:

How can I use the clipboard between HVMs? I have a Windows and a Kali HVM and I cannot copy paste stuff to these machines.

Is there a solution out there?

Thanks in advance!

For that you need Qubes Window Tools installed:

You need to install the qubes-specific packages for kali. Take a look at the following link. You may not even need an HVM for that:

For that you need Qubes Window Tools installed:

Contents/windows-tools.md at master · Qubes-Community/Contents · GitHub

You need to install the qubes-specific packages for kali. Take a look at the following link. You may not even need an HVM for that:

Kali template available

Because Kali is based off debian testing, you use the qubes packages for
Debian-11

In most cases the Qubes packages will work correctly if installed in an
HVM, but this is not guaranteed, and in some cases is known not to work.

Thank you. I’ve had the qubes windows-tools installed but it is still not working. What could I be missing?

I was not aware of the Kali template. That’s awesome. I’m going to give it a shot for sure. Great job guys!
