Basically you got a central config, a config containing filters and a user config to define actions (to keep the central config clean for upgrades). Just tell us what steps you took and where you failed and what the errors where. Configuring Privoxy ain't that hard.

Btw, if you configured it "right" and you set Privoxy as proxy in your browser, you have a GUI at http://p.p
If it won't stop, and you got no init script, just kill the PID.

PID means "Process IDentifier". It's in 1st column of the output if you type "\ps", or you can do (as root) "pgrep privoxy" or "pidof privoxy" and have the PID.
