I’ve been trying on/off to instal and use Qubes for about a year now.
My T440p laptop is Suse/Windows, and I need it daily.
The processor and RAM are highest/top possible by manufacturer
Everytime I sort of get somewhere, I’ve spend so much time that I have to stop and go back to a runing OS to do my stuff … then months passes and when I put my mind back at it, I start all over again …
My current OS are on a separate disk. I bought a 2To disk specifically for Qubes, and is installed inside, ready.
My last attempt at installing Qubes, I decided t start from scratch, I’ve installed the most basic version, not changing ANYTHING for the default (no change in encryption, actually no encrypt at all, no pwd) and all other option are left default.
=> Qubes is up and running, and I manage to open a “Personal FF” session
=> But no Internet connection (RJ45) I see the red icon in the upper right spinning but not connecting.
If I switch WiFi on, it connects to WiFi, but my “Personal FF” still doesn’t connect.
Went back to install, and chose “USB and Network through the same thing”
Same thing happen, no internet connection through wire RJ45, but a connection (upper right red icon) through WiFi (which is not what I want)
And still no connecting with “Personal FF”
BUT … a connection with a disposable Whonix
What do you think ?
