So… I can’t create template VMs now… Am I able to download it from any Qubes repository?
I don’t understand (not for the first time).
If you have deleted the template you used for disposableVMs, you can use
any qube as template for disposableVMs. You may want to create a custom
qube for this purpose.
Just set the property
template_for_dispvms, either at command line
qvm-prefs or in Qube Manager. Then set that as the new
qubes-prefs or in Manager GUI.
If your problem is that you want a template back that you deleted,
just re-install it using
What do you mean by you can’t create template vm?
You can download template by :
[user@dom0 ~]$ sudo qubes-dom0-update qubes-template-fedora-33
[user@dom0 ~]$ sudo qubes-dom0-update qubes-template-debian-10
As for you have deleted DisposableVMs Templates, you can create one based on your TemplateVMs :
[user@dom0 ~]$ qvm-create --template (fedora-33 / debian-10) --label red (fedora-33-dvm / debian-10-dvm) [user@dom0 ~]$ qvm-prefs (fedora-33-dvm / debian-10-dvm) template_for_dispvms True [user@dom0 ~]$ qvm-features (fedora-33-dvm / debian-10-dvm) appmenus-dispvm 1
if you want make it as default disposable template :
[user@dom0 ~]$ qubes-prefs default_dispvm (fedora-33-dvm / debian-10-dvm)
*Note: remove parentheses and choose fedora-33 / debian 10.
Oh, sorry, my mistake… I mean “I can’t create Disposable VMs now”, not template VMs… I mixed it with my other question (How can I create a template HVM of any OS?) asking how to create a template of any OS.
But my main problem is I have deleted the default Qubes disposable VMs, and since I mainly use the GUI, I don’t know how to recreate it using CLI yet.
Also, I have tried to create a disposable VM using Qube manager, but when I click “create new Qubes VM”, the VM options are:
Qube based on a template (App VM)
Standalone qube copied from a template
Empty standalone qube (install your own OS)
You can create one with code I provide above,
You can do too with qube manager :
1. Create qube 2. Name and label : Your choice 3. Type : AppVM 4. Template : Your choice 5. Networking : ideally sys-firewall as default. 6. Tick launch settings after creation 7. Go to Advanced Tab 8. Tick Disposable VM Template (located below provides network)
Oh, it was way easier then I thought. Tks dude
