Packages now updated to version 4.0.8
The updating process (auto or manual) now seems to work without needing to create fresh profiles or anything. Users may find that they get a lot of "captcha" verification requests because the "tor exit nodes tend to earn a bad reputation". It has its limitations but can prove useful on occasions. Thanks to all the folks who are testing and responding.

some people, like me, don't have the time and internet speed to download a 900MB+ ISO image.

Is this the 64 bit or 32 bit version?

And are you checking the signatures for packages?

torproject.org/docs/verifying-signatures.html.en

Don't know if you are already aware of this or tried it but Mic Lee who is developing Onionshare for the torproject has a linux easy starter for the browser.

github.com/micahflee/torbrowser-launcher

Automatically updating (while preserving your bookmarks and preferences) Verifying the TBB's GnuPG signature

Also it has AppArmor that limits the browser integration with the operating system to limit out of bounds exploits.

This is the 32 bit version with x86 in the name. I am not sure if it is i386 or i686 but if we can establish that I will specify in future. I have added a note to the first post. I don't do the verification but do always download from the official site. Puppy does not appear to have the gpg tool but I may look into this in future. Packages from me should always be regarded as experimental. Usual precautions should always be taken.

Thank you! Your SFS works fine on Precise.

Did you just comment out the root check in the start-tor script (and add menu entry and place tor-browser in my-applications), or were more alterations necessary?

I had to chown everything to root:root
This version attempts to launch via its own .desktop file which self-edits or something. I removed that (2 .desktop files) and disabled the script. I also commented out the lines in the starter script which deal with this process. It seems to be working but I am just a relative novice who likes experimenting so all feedback is welcome.

Version number has now gone to 5.0
Based on Firefox ESR 38.2.0 so size has increased.
Seems to work but have only tested it briefly in Wheezy.
See first post.
