However you can manually update without the AUR helpers running "tor-browser -u" as normal user. See comment by zethra for explanations. Lines 42 and 46 of. Those lines where added in the most recent commit FYI. Mentioning it explicitly in depends is unnecessary imho. The XDG does not mention it, but it is the natural result of installing a library instead of a program locally via.
That is a very good idea. LChris Very good catch, thank you! Fixed now. Looks like tor-browser. Not sure this rule applies to all packages, if tor-browser existed in the official repo, yes, but yet tor-browser does not exists in the official repo so one has to build it, maybe one day this package will be in the official repo and having it named -bin in here means nothing. I just did it by deleting the old tor-browser I am not sure any change to pkgrel or epoch is necessary in this case.
If a user has tor-browser already installed then they have no problems. If instead they were unable to install tor-browser earlier, now they will be able to install it. But if I increase pkgrel or epoch I will force an update on all the users for which tor-browser works just fine. It is a heavy package, I am not sure that would be the right thing to do. Edit: Looks like But I think indeed it is no more used or part of an optional feature in tor maybe?
Unfortunately, pushing mozilla-common 1. Maybe the package is no more necessary? Build of You can downgrade glibc, use an alpha version of tor-browser, or wait for the fix. I checked html5test. Optional dependency gst-plugins-good is still installed, tho. It used to work fine, but stopped working a week or two ago. Did some other software update break, or does tor-browser not locate the gstreamer plugins? Another user on an arch-based distro Manjaro I can no longer view videos and even github pages are formatted and displayed incorrectly.
In addition to your experience, when you navigate to beta. It never loads. It has been working like a charm for years. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. In that case the actual IP is revealed, which imo is a much bigger liability. That patch seems a bit of a security liability. If I click on a link on some desktop app say, an IM client , it could trigger Tor to open that link.
I personally prefer the AUR approach, since that keeps the upgrade as I regularly upgrade stuff, with aursync or the AUR helper of your choice, when I do a system upgrade. And I do use gnupg, :. Some of those deal with gpg and launching BTW. In that regard I like the AUR choice better. Changing it to en-US sorted it out.
If that results in a unexisting language it will download by default the en-US version with a hyphen. Ucak I have this problem too, so I decided to create an AUR package which uses tor service to download sources, you just have to make sure tor service is up and working. There was a github link for downloading it, a mirror. It may be a good idea to use the github link for this or creating a new aur package.
Should gtk3 be a dependency? I was left mildly confused when tor-browser failed silently on a fresh install, until I tried --debug. However, it seems that the latest tor-browser has started a tor instance which occupies I suggest you stop tor serivce using sudo systemctl stop tor , open tor-browser and try these commands:. For somehow it starts trying to listen on rather than , which conflicts the system tor, after the recent upgrade. I went through the UI of the tor-browser. Note: I could only update through the update provided by the browser, according to the image link below:.
Building tor-browser Passed tor-browser. A signature is something that must be added only once, and the user must be able to control it manually. The release signing key has been poisoned on the SKS key servers, so the recommended way of fetching the key is gpg --auto-key-locate nodefault,wkd --locate-keys torbrowser torproject. An alternative gpg public key will be required with corresponding signature files as well. Not sure if any of the other keys for tor-browser devs:.
Can be used, with new asc files I also had to get rid of another old key from Tor and another one from Enigmail These you have to provide yourself, and if a server does not work, all you have to do is to search for another server. Tried the latest methods in comments. The pgp. Please fix the package, or reupload the key to some working key server. Found one! This one imported nicely: gpg --keyserver pgp.
However I have just made jugs from tor-browser-en co-maintainer of this package. If you are getting makepkg error, run this first. Skipped tor-browser-en. Passed tor-browser-en. Otherwise, just delete the extra hashes. For me, tor-browser works fine without gtk2 installed. So, the gtk2 dependency should be removed and a gtk3 dependency added. How do I submit a patch to a file which is not part of upstream?
Hello everybody, I have the same issue as "zilvervos commented on " when I try yaourt -S tor-browser:. I tried to replace 8. I did also gpg --keyserver pool. Nouvelle version : 8. New version : 8. The command exits with code with no further output given. If the provided "firefox" executable is run directly, we get:. Trying to get the new gpg key always returns gpg: keyserver receive failed: No data for me Error during update: tor-browser-linux Ciao Alessio, stesso problema delle firme GPG.
Why anyone here should care about Manjaro issues? After upgrading to 8. The Tor Network Settings window will not appear on startup, neither it shows up on selecting it shows up on selecting the entry in the Torbutton menu. Nor does any other menu entry do anything… :. Version actuelle 7. I seriously came here to ask the same thing as nTia89 — what is the deal with using three hash functions? This is just silly antics that make it harder to manage manually, clutter the diff history, and all without providing any benefit.
I downloaded, updated the keys, and ran "makepkg -sri" on this package. I cannot find the updated browser on my system. If I run ". Where is version 7. The find command finds no other instances of file start-tor-browser.

Pinned Comments. Latest Comments. Is there a reason this package is not included in [community]? I know a TU has to adopt it, has there been no interest, or is it excluded for some reason? Darkness The solution is in the pinned comments. Passed tor-browser-linux Running mksrcinfo fixes this. But given the huge user base of this package, I would say that the debate has just started. Application creates their folders in. Can you switch arch to any or add pentium4? If you experience the same issue use VPN.
Regarding the pinned comment: is that still correct or is there a server problem? FabioLolix Not sure this rule applies to all packages, if tor-browser existed in the official repo, yes, but yet tor-browser does not exists in the official repo so one has to build it, maybe one day this package will be in the official repo and having it named -bin in here means nothing. This pkgbuild lacks -bin suffix as is not build from source. But I can simply clone the git repository and build and install the package from there.
Thanks for the updates folks, we are tracking the issue on the tor-browser gitlab. The easiest workaround at the moment is to downgrade to the last 2. An update to this, looks like this is an issue affecting Arch users who have upgraded glibc. Found it. Since the update to Are there any other effects of enabling --allow-remote? That allows crossing my non-tor IP with my in-tor session. Leave them like this! Please add tor to depends array. All that applies as long as grufo keeps maintaining tor-browser.
Why the browser is only on AUR? Please update Tor new logo. Thanks grufo. Please give me feedback on this package, Thanks. Tor will not make or accept non-control network connections. Shutting down all existing connections. Is Tor already running? But the question is: Why? I suggest you stop tor serivce using sudo systemctl stop tor , open tor-browser and try these commands: telnet Serial Fixed!
BrLi Good catch! Merged :. I am unable to install the package. The suggested gpg is not working and I just get timed out. DDoSolitary Done! Thank you! My gpg --list-keys is still sub-second. Same problem. Do not ever use short key IDs. TIA for any assistance. How do I verify PGP signatures for this package? Firedox is also a dependency. Or maybe just some of its dependencies. Please try in a chroot.
Getting validation errors on the latest update Thanks atnanasi, It works after to get the keys with the second one command. New version 8. And always : gpg --search-keys yspro gmail. Turkish ISPs block torproject.
Does anybody encounter the same issue? Take care. Apparently gtk3 is required. Just use keyserver. Icon should be just tor-browser, not the full path. Otherwise, icon themes will not work. Where are merging this package into tor-browser-es-es. Should happen anytime now. Pryka: Looks like you missed your stated goal Thx LaughingMan. New signing key for 8. Does anybody have H. Update : never mind, was able to fix it by installing ffmpeg-compat from AUR.
This has been already mentioned in the very first comment from TrialnError. Or, instead, is it planned to build it from source any time soon? Before running makepkg, you must do this: gpg --keyserver pool. Pinned keyserver seems to be down. Thanks for comment. I fixed checksum. Hi, In tor-browser-en. This package is broken in many different AUR helpers at the moment because of an error with the SSL certificate for torproject. Is there any workaround for this?
LaughingMan tor-browser and tor-browser-en-us do that. Would you like to be co-mantainers of tor-browser-en-us? Only automatically set the checksum of signature files to SKIP. Yes, signature checking of the source files using the signature files downloaded due to their presence in the sources array is done during makepkg.
Imagine you have not imported the PGP keys and I did. Now imagine that I build the tor-browser package and I email it to you the built pacman package. My question is: will you be able to install it? But the. The message makepkg outputs should be enough, IMHO. Maybe this could be a proposal for Arch developers regarding the. The message about signature verification is useless in the install file as you should already have built and installed the package before seeing it.
The tor-browser package was already fixed. Thank you for the suggestion! But unfortunately I have no internet on my computer at the moment, therefore I can upload it only in the next days. Stay tuned! The github download links are consistently out-of-date. Can you change the sources to download from GitHub? Hi FabioLolix, thanks for adding me to the co-maintainer list. I just standardized the package and updated it. Plexcon, pues ya lo tienes. Un saludo. Ciao Alessio, adotterei questo pkgbuild volentieri.
I think you should update the "Icon" section in the. Skipped tor-browser-linux As mentioned the gpg errors are an issue with default versions of gnupg in most linux distros, specifically a dns resolution issue. Sorry for late. I updated it to 6. TrialnError Perfect then! Thanks for your help! Looking good. But after testing it, it extracted the source package. Muchas gracias.
Actualizado a 6. TrialnError Thanks! I think now it should be fine. Those releases are signed with a pgp key therefore the validpgpkeys entry. If the checksum entry is set to SKIP as it is usually done for sigfiles , it would download the source and its respective signature file and use the validpgpkeys entry to check if the downloaded file is valid you only need this key in your local gnupg keyring, else it will fail with an error message.
TrialnError Thanks for your contribution. Now I added both architectures 32 and 64 bit. The problem with signatures however is that this is a language-agnostic PKGBUILD, and therefore there would be needed as many signatures as the languages are, or am I wrong? Yes, you are right about nearly all your points. But if you want to help I will be happy to use your contributions!
What does it make different from tor-browser-bin? In general? And tor-browser-bin has its own problems. Actualizado a la 6. Спасибо дорогой товарищ! Bonjour teke gpg --keyserver pgp. Gpg key verification can be skipped by replacing a pkgbuild line which is not recommended as tor is a very crucial piece of software. Now i understand it and have no problem with this packagebuild : Still, it would be nice if there would be a mechanism in makepkg to embed the whole key or at least instruct it to download it The command from pinned message should work now for everyone running the latest gnupg.
What bothers me most is that people are not able to read even two comments back and try downgrading gnupg and then reporting back if it worked or not. The GPG command specified in the comments does not work. Downgrading to gnupg What a crappy piece of software.. First time running: gpg --keyserver pool. After killing dirmngr, i get "No such file or directory". All other times, i get "No keyserver available".
I tried various other keyservers with the same results. Maintainer: The package kdebase-kdialog was renamed to just kdialog recently. Unfortunately gpg --keyserver pool. A headache indeed. Listing the subkey does nothing. See line "If the file was signed with a subkey, arg10 contains the fingerprint of the primary key" Note that makepkg has no code for retrieving signatures. It relies on you to --recv-key on your own.
So no matter what you need to --recv-key, which only downloads the key and does not imply that you fully trust it for that you would run --edit-key. Validgpgkeys is used in lieue of fully trusting the key, but you still need to download it yourself. There is no other way. Alpha I got this too. Such a headache!! Such a headache! All this people having trouble and the available key in comment feedback this message, gpg: keyserver receive failed: No keyserver available.
If one adds the keys needed to verify this package the ones you said we should add manually to the keyring, these are used for all packages, rather than only for this package, if they are in the validpgpkeys array in the PKGBUILD.
Which "these keys"? I also get this problem with the AUR package: tor-browser-linux Can you please change the validpgpkeys to the correct ones since the current ones are not the ones the paackage is signed with? You may have a MITM. For me dist. Issued by: DigiCert Inc www.
If this HTTPS server uses a certificate signed by a CA represented in the bundle, the certificate verification probably failed due to a problem with the certificate it might be expired, or the name might not match the domain name in the URL. How can I install offline tor package? Please do not mess around with gpg-keyrings of the users with bloody scripting. AUR-Helper should just implement a semiautomatic function for this.
Calling gpg from the build script would be a careless hack at best. Ideally every package should be using validpgpkeys and every user should know how to handle it. I have imported key by: gpg --keyserver keys. Sorry for the delay in updating to version 6.
Also, I just tested tor-browser-en on arguments with spaces, and it seems to have been fixed, which is what the bug report claims as well. I found a problem. I just tested it on a URL, though, and it seems to work ok.
If building the package fails with the message "unknown public key", run a command "gpg --keyserver pool. Even after rebuilding trustdb. Verifying source file signatures with gpg I am Arch newbie. Hi, getting an "unknown public key" error when makepkg attempts to build the browser bundle. Sorry for the backlog of feature requests, everyone.
I am getting integrity check errors. Спасибо огромное "автору" за поддержку tor-browser-ru на AUR! In order to allow customizations with icons themes, could you change Icons entry in. I just think rm is potentially dangerous to have in the script.
What if the developer accidentally spells the variable wrong one day? There is a line in the update function which concerns me. Maximizing the browser allows websites to access device info such as screen size and resolution. The tor browser even shows you a warning if you do it. By default, Tor Browser chooses the standard security level.
You can learn more about the levels here. To access this menu, click the onion below the tabs and select Security Settings. Try to use search engines that do not track you. A few examples are DuckDuckGo or Disconnect. Tor even sets DuckDuckGo as the default search engine. Also avoid installing browser extensions as they may track you.
Try to stay away from these kind of websites. Instead, your data is relayed and transferred through a number of locations. This is called a Tor Circuit. You can view your current circuit by pressing the lock icon on the left of your address bar. Instead of using normal websites, you can use Onion services which are part of the Tor network. Some websites are available in this form. They use a.

I hope this article helped you in installing Tor browser on Ubuntu and other Linux distributions and thus enabling you to protect your privacy. Speaking of privacy, VPNs are another popular tool for protecting privacy. You can get their service as well, if you are interested. Since starting Linux a few years ago, I am still amazed that I will have a problem — Google a fix, end up on a site like this, and see that the same problem I am having is one people were having a couple years ago and no one has fixed it.

Install Tor browser launcher using APT Installs older version but an alternative method The Tor browser launcher has been included in the Universe repository of Ubuntu so you can easily use the apt command to install it. If you are using Ubuntu, make sure that you have the Universe repository enabled. So, to run the launcher, you need to simply type in: torbrowser-launcher.
