Ubuntu OS [SOLVED]

Post by yabbadoo » Sat Jan 23, 2016 7:05 am

I use Windows XP Home with SP3 and always open my browser with Sandboxie.

If I the keep XP as my main OS and install Ubuntu as an alternative OS to select as required, can I then use Sandboxie with Ubuntu without having any problems?

If XP is my main OS, then I start as normal and the XP desktop screen appears. On this screen is an Ubuntu icon. If i click it, up comes the Ubuntu desktop screen On that screen is a Sandboxie icon, one of many, which if configured correctly allows me to open my Ubuntu browser (Opera) sandboxed like any other program and just like it does on XP.

What is wrong with that ?

Peter,

Is Sandboxie compatible with Ubuntu ?

Sandboxie is not compatible with Linux OS.

There was a claim by Wine that would allow Sandboxie to be emulated in Linux. It does not work. As SBIE needs to install a driver and that cannot be done in Wine (much like SBIE.) I've spoke to their Dev and have confirmed this.

Sandboxie is Windows Only. Unless you're in a VM...then you can load Win in Linux..i.e Virtual box or using Boot camp on a Mac. You can also just run Ubuntu Live. Either USB / CD. But again, SBIE will only work when installed on a Windows based kernel.

Thank you, Your comments confirm what many web discussions say - Sandboxie is not for Ubuntu and an alternative like Virtualbox will have to be used. I have my answer.
