Subject description: Tor - knot
 

I really like using root and being unconcerned with the usual suspects

I have been trying to use the tor browser in linux kodachi to get into the FUD web aka dankweb. Could I? No. Not the first time. Tried using tor in Puppy just goes nowhere slowly . . .

Maybe I need to check out voat or reddit for websites to get info?

Have you used tor? I know you can not tell me because you will be abducted by aliens working for MIB. However in case you are crazy enough to share, glad to know how you got on . . . Rolling Eyes

I have Tor 6.5.1 which is the latest version running on Tahr 6.0.6.
Here is what I did to get it to run:

Download Tor

I extracted the files to /opt
in a terminal :
Code:
chown -R root:root /opt/tor-browser_en-US

goto /opt/tor-browser_en-US/start-tor-browser and open it in geany.

goto lines 94-97 and comment them out.
Code:
#if [ "`id -u`" -eq 0 ]; then
#   complain "The Tor Browser Bundle should not be run as root.  Exiting."
#   exit 1
#fi

open up start-tor-browser.desktop in the tor folder and make line 31 look like this:
Code:
Exec=/opt/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/start-tor-browser --detach


click on start-tor-browser.desktop....it should start!

Good Luck!

- thanks for info @rockedge Cool

I get tor running but it never seems able to connect to anywhere on the darkweb. Is my UK ISP or some agency looking out for my censoring requirements likely to have a blacklist routing system blocking me?

I know tor is slow but even so . . .

Any start URL you recommend?

So the TOR circuit is completed and the browser starts? That is a good sign if that is the case.
try this in the Tor browser address bar -> https://check.torproject.org/?lang=en_US ... what happens?

here is a search engine that should start to work->
https://onion.link/
and an index -> https://torlinkbgs6aabns.onion.link/
https://xmh57jrzrnw6insl.onion.link/

any luck? Sometimes my connection is slow-ish and sometimes surprisingly fast. We will continue to try to get this going for you!

All working in Puppy now @rockedge Cool

Really appreciate all your outstanding help. Is it worth using a VPN as Linux Kodachi do, or is that overkill Question
