I was working on xfce 32 bit with chrome. After reading a little more, I have added qt. This did help. I am now able to start tor and it seems to work. The problem seems to be setting up the sockhost on chrome. I proceed as you proposed with 127.0.0.1 and port to 9150.wread wrote:@francois
Working with chrome under tor is the same as working without it; you will notice differences when running google, for example, that google thinks (sometimes) that you are actually in other country; some other times, google asks you for validation of your identity, it says "the problem is that William Read is using IP nnn.nnn.mmm.jjj..... and that is unusual"....
With chrome you can switch to tor or not to tor with the switchy button. I wrote a post with instructions how to set up chrome for tor, but I was not logged in and the post got lost. It goes like that:
1.-from chrome store install plugin proxy switchysharp,
2.-when the proxy button appears, press it and go to options,
3.-press new profile, name it tor, and tip manual configurations, set sockhost to 127.0.0.1 and port to 9150,
4.-save and close. Test the configuration running http://check.torproject.org,
5.-to make settings permanent put in rootcopy (or make a module) root/.cache/google-chrome and root/.config/google-chrome.
I suppose you got tor running ok, but has tested only the Tor-browser included in the package (derived from firefox, I guess).
Happy toring, francois!
However, when I select tor as proxy there is no navigation possible.
