Tor and Pale Moon


I have got Tor working with Pale Moon, but I can't seem to start Tor without being root. How do I run tor without root?

I don't want to use the tor bundle, I want to use my preference which is pale moon.

How are you starting Tor?
I use to use Vidalia.
I just searched for it and can't find it over at the Tor Web Site nor at slackbuilds.org

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Network...-Windows.shtml

OK, just found it for Slackware-14.1,

https://slackbuilds.org/repository/1...search=vidalia

Whether it will work for you or not, I can't say.

I run tor in the terminal and everything loads up but only when I'm root. If I run it in user mode it's a no go.

Tor and Pale Moon

Is it possible that you just need to make your Tor files executable by your user/group?

you'd likely be better off using tor browser fwiw.

Otherwise if you installed tor using the script found here https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/network/tor/ you can use tor as a socks proxy and achieve the effect you are after.

This might be my solution but I don't know how to do this? I'm not sure what I would be giving permission to. Pale Moon and Tor works great together btw.

You do not experience a ton of captcha's using tor with Pale Moon? I'm not sure if you tried using it as a socks5 proxy yet but that is, imo, the correct way to use tor with Pale Moon.

Whatever Tor executables are involved with your setup. I haven't messed with Tor in awhile, so I don't remember what all is in the package.

Are you getting "permission denied" messages when trying to start from terminal as user? They might give you a good idea of what needs to be made executable by your user.

Yes, I did get the permission denied as user. Then when I run as root I get a warning saying Tor should not be run as root because it's not safe blah blah etc.... I'll post the error log in a little bit.

I got everything working ATM. I needed to create the tor user/group. I had compiled it on another computer, so I thought all was good. I also fixed my dns leak without privoxy. The less software/applications, the better. Thanks again.
