Thanks. I didn’t realize it was just me that was having this issue. So, to first answer your 2 questions:
xdg-settings get default-web-browser” returns:
non commented lines in /etc/qubes-rpc/policy/qubes.OpenURL are:
$anyvm $dispvm allow
$anyvm $anyvm ask
I had assumed that since the man page said that the parameter was supposed to be a file, and not a url, that that’s why
/usr/bin/qvm-open-in-dvm https://google.com wasn’t working. but if it works for you. Hmm, i’m running qubes 4.0, not the new development 4.1 version if that’s relavant.
Also, note that the disposable VM starts, it then just halts without ever doing anything. I was assuming that it was launching, trying to transfer a file named “https://google.com”, failing to do so, then halting and destroying itself.
Since it destroys itself, would I be correct in assuming that there is no way to get logfiles of what’s going on in the disposable VM?
