Guide to install and manage tor on ubuntu 4.16 without vidalia

Scritto da:MD     Categoria: Informatica

Hi, as I was accustomed to vidalia, I had to endeavor to better manage tor on the new version! But let’s take it easy, first of all we install tor, open the terminal with ctrl + t:
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Now it will open a text editor, copy and paste the following line at the bottom:
deb xenial main
save and close the editor. Always on the terminal to:
gpg –keyserver –recv 886DDD89 gpg –export A3C4F0F979CAA22CDBA8F512EE8CBC9E886DDD89 | sudo apt-key add – sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install tor

then you have to install the proxy:

sudo apt-get install polipo

sudo gedit /etc/polipo/config

### Basic configuration
### *******************

# Uncomment one of these if you want to allow remote clients to
# connect:

# proxyAddress = "::0"        # both IPv4 and IPv6
# proxyAddress = ""    # IPv4 only

proxyAddress = ""
proxyPort = 8118

# If you do that, you'll want to restrict the set of hosts allowed to
# connect:

# allowedClients = ","
# allowedClients = ","

allowedClients =
allowedPorts = 1-65535

# Uncomment this if you want your Polipo to identify itself by
# something else than the host name:

proxyName = "localhost"

# Uncomment this if there's only one user using this instance of Polipo:

cacheIsShared = false

# Uncomment this if you want to use a parent proxy:

# parentProxy = ""

# Uncomment this if you want to use a parent SOCKS proxy:

socksParentProxy = "localhost:9050"
socksProxyType = socks5

Well now you have to configure:
sudo gedit /etc/default/tor

We’re going to put in place of RUN_DAEMON=”yes”


Now to prevent the automatic start giving:
sudo systemctl disable tor.service

sudo update-rc.d tor disable

sudo update-rc.d -f tor remove

Now restart your PC! To graphically manage the start-tor instead of vidalia I created a small program with gui Download it here

Put it in your home or wherever you like is important not to move it if you want that it does not require a password:

sudo gedit /etc/sudoers OR sudo visudo

basically enter:
YourName ALL= NOPASSWD: /home/YourName/

Here now right-click on in your home, click properties, permissions enable the execution! For firefox you should get “Proxy selector” by Michele Pezza, to manage the proxy now easily go on plugins, manage proxy , add and copy the following configurations:

Good surfing Tor 😉
