Installing Mullvad Browser

Note the version of Mullvad Browser, and update this accordingly in all the following commands

Transfer the archive of Mullvad Browser to your desired App VM (not template VM) using qvm-copy from the directory in which it is located:

qvm-copy mullvad-browser-linux64-12.5.1_ALL.tar.xz  (replace file name with correct version)

 Once transferred, open a Terminal in the destination App VM and extract the archive to ~/.local/share:

cd QubesIncoming/disp6740/

tar -xf mullvad-browser-linux64-12.0.7_ALL.tar.xz -C ~/.local/share/

Install the browser and add the desktop entry:

cd ~/.local/share/mullvad-browser

./start-mullvad-browser.desktop --register-app

 This should result in a message that reads:

Launching './Browser/start-mullvad-browser --detach --register-app'...
Mullvad Browser has been registered as a desktop app for this user in ~/.local/share/applications/
