privoxy + tor + proxychains on BT5 AKA ubuntu 10.04


i'm on BT5 and have followed numerous tutorials on installing and configuring tor to work with privoxy and proxychains, my problem has been that when i type "proxychains w3m google.com" i keep getting timed out... that was my initial problem. When i was trying different things to try and get it to work i tried uninstalling and reinstalling everything... I noticed that my configuration file for privoxy was not restoring to the default when i did a fresh install so i typed the command "rm /etc/privoxy/config" when reinstalling privoxy that file was not restored. so my number one concern right now is getting my privoxy configuration file back or at least finding a default sample i can copy... My second concern is getting everything to work... I hope you can help
thanx in advanced

Try
Code:
sudo apt-get --purge remove privoxy
sudo apt-get install privoxy
Kind regards
