Not sure what you mean by set up. You just need to import them.

I think that's simpler than any guide. The hardest remaining part is the
social engineering part. No anonymity setup can spare users from
educating themselves. Example:

There is space for improvement. The next huge step to make it even
simpler would be a Whonix USB installer, which takes care of installing
the host operating system (maybe OneVM).


Or if we don't want to go that far the setup of importing two virtual
machines could be made simpler by creating an installer doing that task.
Also the Virtual Box controls could be simplified.

We had that running as well:

Actually we had a complete guide which included a one file shell script.

I never liked it because you end up with different instructions for
different host operating systems. That's contradictory with the goal of
making things simpler. Due to the difficulties to deploy it, much less
users can profit from it.

Feel free to takeover OneVM.

Good luck with your journey. This field of development needs more
people. Whatever path you will choose, it will be an enrichment.
