Autoconnect to a tor instance loaded after startup

Reported by: T(A)ILS developers Owned by: chiiph
Priority: Medium Milestone:
Component: Archived/Vidalia Version: Vidalia 0.2.10
Severity: Normal Keywords: archived-closed-2018-07-04

Parent ID: #1247 Points:
Reviewer: Sponsor:



In Debian systems, Tor is launched as a daemon, which has its own user. Vidalia then connects to Tor through the control port.

Steps to reproduce the problem

  1. Start Vidalia
  2. (Re-)start the Tor daemon, e.g. a by a script triggered because the system got a new connection (this restart is required due to a tor bug #1247)

Expected result

Vidalia (re-)connects to the Tor daemon.

Actual result

Vidalia says that "Tor is not running"


The user need to click on "Start Tor" after the daemon restart.

same pb
tor is set up separately inde pendantly.
it's a daemon started by the system when you start the pc
and the owner of tor is "toruser" user with "toruser" group, not the current user
which uses vidalia
