I have tails installed in a pen drive (non in live mode but using the pen drive with a HDD) and I want to save the configuration. I read that I have that to use the "volume persistence", but I don't know as I have to configure it. Do you know the correct way to save the configuration on tails? I want to set, for example, the region and language, and also the keyboard language.

Thanks and regards, Kathy


you cannot save the region, language and keyboard language in the encrypted persistence of tails. these settings always have to be set in the greeter. You can find a list of persistence features in the tails documentation.

  • OK. I'll checkint it. Tkanks! Kathy

  • Hello again. Do you know if exist the possibility to configure and activate the features with the accesibility activated? I'm a blind, and I use a Screen Reader software "orca". I was to create a persistence volume with help of one person, but I need to know if I can to activate the persistence (since I saved the configuration with all features activated) but I cannot to change the language and region because I cannot to activate the use of the persistence in a welcome dialog.

  • I configured the persistence and language and region in the welcome dialog of tails with help of one person, but the configuration wasn't saved although I checked the option "Yes" use the persistence, and I entered my pass frase. There some option that I'm not considering? Thanks and regards, Kathy.
