I tried to install privoxy 3.0.19 through the puppy package manger. It installs with no errors or missing dependencies but is not in the internet menu where it says it should be. If I go into the terminal emulator and type privoxy this is what I get:

b762a6co Fatal error: can't check configuration file '/root/config': No such file or directory

Can anyone tell me how to get this working?

Thanks,
Dan

What version of Puppy?
How is it installed? Full or frugal?

You download it in PPM from what repository?

There are several builds of Privoxy .pets around.
I don't remember which one has everything set up right.

For your problem you can move /etc/privoxy/config to /root config.
For the startup, you would normally link the executable to /root/startup/privoxy.
The executable is most likely in /root/my-applications/privoxy, but could be somewhere else, depending on who packaged it.

i know this is an old thread but the directions given worked for me in Slacko 5.5
copy config to /root/config
amend enable edit option in config if wanted
make link in startup folder to privoxy executable from /usr/sbin/privoxy

hope that helps someone

privoxy 3.19
