Confused about using tor and proxy


Hi
I am using openSUSE 12.2 KDE,
and I connect to internet through a proxy server.
I want to use tor, and I cant figure out how to do this.
Also I cant use anything but firefox, like I cant
user zypper to update system.
I tried using `proxychains` for zypper with no luck.

So the question is how to use tor and my own HTTP proxy
together and also how to make `every` program use this combination
or at least my HTTP proxy.

thx in advance

Have you at least tried configuring Yast for proxy use? As in Yast -> Network services -> Proxy?

sry if i was not clear. i think it allows http and https.
i think i have tried that. i searched for proxy in kickoff and i configured everything it showed. after configuring it,
it wanted me to relogin, but i had the same
situation after this. nothing worked without explicit proxy setting.
i downloaded tor browser for linux and it
has an option for setting proxy, but i can't find anything in tor config files.

Does that mean that if you for example edit Firefox' own proxy settings you actually can access the 'net?

Please note TOR is not meant for huge volume traffic like streaming music, watching videos, downloading BitTorrent or your distributions updates.

That said TOR comes with documentation (or see https://www.torproject.org/documentation.html and https://wiki.torproject.org/noreply/...er/TorifyHOWTO) and manual pages. Here's the relevant part wrt specifying proxies:
Code:
       HTTPProxy host[:port]
           Tor will make all its directory requests through this host:port (or
           host:80 if port is not specified), rather than connecting directly
           to any directory servers.

       HTTPProxyAuthenticator username:password
           If defined, Tor will use this username:password for Basic HTTP
           proxy authentication, as in RFC 2617. This is currently the only
           form of HTTP proxy authentication that Tor supports; feel free to
           submit a patch if you want it to support others.

       HTTPSProxy host[:port]
           Tor will make all its OR (SSL) connections through this host:port
           (or host:443 if port is not specified), via HTTP CONNECT rather
           than connecting directly to servers. You may want to set
           FascistFirewall to restrict the set of ports you might try to
           connect to, if your HTTPS proxy only allows connecting to certain
           ports.

       HTTPSProxyAuthenticator username:password
           If defined, Tor will use this username:password for Basic HTTPS
           proxy authentication, as in RFC 2617. This is currently the only
           form of HTTPS proxy authentication that Tor supports; feel free to
           submit a patch if you want it to support others.

       Socks4Proxy host[:port]
           Tor will make all OR connections through the SOCKS 4 proxy at
           host:port (or host:1080 if port is not specified).

       Socks5Proxy host[:port]
           Tor will make all OR connections through the SOCKS 5 proxy at
           host:port (or host:1080 if port is not specified).

       Socks5ProxyUsername username

       Socks5ProxyPassword password
           If defined, authenticate to the SOCKS 5 server using username and
           password in accordance to RFC 1929. Both username and password must
           be between 1 and 255 characters.

I dont do any of them (except for updating).
I mostly use tor because here internet is censored(IR) and I cant go everywhere without tor.
And sometimes I cant update my system without using tor (same reason).

I think I needed this. Thank you!
