Those hacks were required in 4.0 but should not be needed in 4.1

This what happened many times in different days

It seems like maybe you are doing this from a TemplateVM, yes? If so …

  1. Don’t open a terminal, “Open console in qube” (from Qubes Manager) instead
  2. You’ll need to make reference to tinyproxy when internetting from a template. Try this:
# export https_proxy= && wget && wget

Ok I am not tech savy …

Do you mean First:

open console


I have to write this in my console

# export https_proxy= && wget && wget

Yes but, now I’ve got to ask; why are you even downloading this to a TemplateVM?

The last time I installed anbox, I just followed this documentation:

A) Manually download (via browser/cli) from a (disposable?) internet connected guest qube

B) Verify file with signature

C) Copy to dom0
In dom0:

$ qvm-run --pass-io dispXXXX 'cat "/media/user/android_amd64.img"' > android_amd64.img

D) Create Standalone/HVM
In dom0:

$ qvm-create --property=virt_mode=hvm --property=memory=4096 --property=kernel='' --label red --standalone --root-move-from android_amd64.img anbox

Why sudo?

Because I’m tired … :sleeping:

You’re correct, not needed nor specified in documentation. Thanks for pointing that out :wink: :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

let’s give it a try …

First I have to follow this guide to download Anbox on my disposable vm (fedora )

Is it correct ?

I’ve never bothered to install in that way, nested.

I (and, I think others) have opted to install the raw img file to a Standalone/HVM drive.

The steps for creating like this are here.

i followed your steps exactly but when i start the VM it says ‘no bootable device’.
