Whonix APT Repository Tool

This tool can always be used to enable either Whonix's stable, testers or developers repository or to disable Whonix's repository.

Whonix's APT Repository is not enabled by default. Some users prefer this for trust/security reasons.

On first boot of Whonix, the Whonix Repository Tool gets automatically started by whonixsetup. The user is free to either leave Whonix's repository disabled or to configure it as desired.

Technically speaking, this tool creates or deletes /etc/sources.list.d/whonix.list and adds or deletes Whonix's signing key from apt-key.

How to install whonix-repository using apt-get

1. Download Whonix's Signing Key.

wget https://www.whonix.org/patrick.asc

Users can check Whonix Signing Key for better security.

2. Add Whonix's signing key.

sudo apt-key --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/whonix.gpg add ~/patrick.asc

3. Add Whonix's APT repository.

echo "deb https://deb.whonix.org buster main contrib non-free" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/whonix.list

4. Update your package lists.

sudo apt-get update

5. Install whonix-repository.
