System work: Tor configuration for Ubuntu 10.10

Nothing of note, just working on an Ubuntu 10.10 fork.

Tor isn't the most straightforward thing to install (not that I'm any good at Linux). Linux is indeed the straight-razor to Windows' electric shaver.

I bet it makes sense to people who've been using it for awhile, but to be honest- without reading the manpages, I had no idea what I was doing and was struggling with the why behind the operations (and the failures thereof).

Just thought I'd share this useful tidbit with y'all: ]

It's a guide for installing Tor, Vidalia, and Privoxy on your computer.

Don't mind me, I'm just learning to do everything in Linux.


  1. Good info. I'm using ubuntu too.

  2. Try installing Gimpshop... I've tried and given up like 8 times.

  3. wow one my friend tried tor on linux .. it didn't work i will send him this thank you very much

  4. hope you can keep it up. i kept losing motivation with trying to learn linux but once you get it, it's smooth sailing

  5. LOL, it's going to be a hurdle getting it to run in a Linux install, but you're pretty sharp, I'm sure you'll figure it out!
