    Tor and Google Chrome


    Hi

    I am running on Debian 7.5 64 bits under Gnome interface and I would like to use the tor network when I browse on the internet with Google Chrome Browser.
    I installed tor and privoxy :
    Code:
    apt-get install tor privoxy
    I added the line
    forward-socks4a / 127.0.0.1:9050 .
    to the privoxy configuration's file.
    Here you are this latter file :

    Code:
    #Generally, this file goes in /etc/privoxy/config
    forward-socks4a / 127.0.0.1:9050 .
    confdir /etc/privoxy
    logdir /var/log/privoxy
    actionsfile standard
    actionsfile default
    actionsfile user
    filterfile default.filter
     
    debug   4096
    debug   8192
     
    user-manual /usr/share/doc/privoxy/user-manual
    listen-address  127.0.0.1:8118
    toggle  1
    enable-remote-toggle 0
    enable-edit-actions 0
    enable-remote-http-toggle 0
    buffer-limit 4096
    I launched the privoxy and tor's services :

    Code:
    /etc/init.d/privoxy start 
    /etc/init.d/tor start
    The circuit was successfully built.

    Then I launched Chrome (NOT in ROOT) with the following manual proxy settings :
    HTTP proxy : 127.0.0.1 to the port 8118

    However, when I go to the page :
    check.torproject

    it says that I am not using Tor.

    the tor's log file

    AFAIK the firefox and tor bundle has set up FFx so that it runs with Tor out of the box...

    I never tried to look up all the stuff they did so that it will run out of the box, but I suggest you look on the tor website itself, unless here are people who know more way about it than me, so: sorry, just a tip, but no solution.
