started here and download your choice in our case 64bit Linux ver.

https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en

unpack in /root/my-applications. and open /root/my-applications/tor-browser...64..then look for and open "start tor-brower" as text and go to this piece of script

if [ "`id -u`" -eq 0 ]; then
complain "The Tor Browser Bundle should not be run as root. Exiting."

I changed the 0 to 1 save and exit. there maybe a more elegant way but works so far.

this allows tor to run as root otherwise wil cry about root and close.

there probably is a way to run it as spot but I have changed fatdog to run and save as root.

fatdog64 needs the dbus pet installed.

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/fatdog/pets/500/


then move /root/my-applications/tor-browser...64.. to mnt/home and symlink it back to /root/my-applications creating /root/my-applications/tor-browser...64..

Thanks for that- finally I've got TOR browser bundle 2.2.35-3 working in Puppy 5.3.1 (Slacko).

Nice and simple fix.

(It's line 111 - [in Geany] - that needed changing on my TOR version - for 32bit Puppy - and that's ALL I did)


Not sure what the danger is, if any, in running it as root, but Puppy seems to be deliberately designed to run as root anyway..

Anyone know what possible adverse consequences there may be?

I'm running Puppy from a DVD by the way.

p.s. I've installed TOR in 'my-applications'.

glad you found it useful and thanks for the Geany reference.

only thing I've found as a potential problem is adding some addons to ff

which can will break tor's built in protection. for in depth discussion check out the tor blog.
