Interested to hear about people's experiences running proxychains-ng.

Am running TAILS 1.2

Can't start up firefox when using proxychains-ng as per below:

[proxychains] config file found: /usr/local/etc/proxychains.conf
[proxychains] preloading ./
proxychains can't load process....: No such file or directory

Using curl I get further but doesn't seem to start up firefox

sudo proxychains4 curl -s
[sudo] password for amnesia:
[proxychains] config file found: /usr/local/etc/proxychains.conf
[proxychains] preloading /usr/local/lib/
[proxychains] DLL init: proxychains-ng 4.8.1
[proxychains] Strict chain ... ... ... <--socket error or timeout!

Linux/Debian noob here so its quite likely something simple
Any pointers would be appreciated.

Does this mean you've solved your problem in your previous thread? (help to create a symbolic link). If so please mark that thread as [SOLVED] to avoid wasting people's time.
