Hello, :)

Is there a kind Mac user who knows the answer to this & would like to please share it with an average user (read: I'm not an expert techno-head)?

Vidalia (0.2.10) Control Panel states: Connected to the Tor network!

Namoroka (version 3.6.13) states: Sorry. You are not using Tor.

I've uninstalled & installed the Tor Bundle & changed proxy settings but to no avail.

On a MacBookPro 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Thank you kindly :)

so, unfortunately, i'm not sure how it happened but i manually uninstalled all the Tor files from my macbook pro computer & thumb drive, reset the computer network settings, updated to Snow Leopard 10.6.6, ran disk warrior on the os hard drive & thumbdrive & used an ethernet cable instead of wifi, updated to the new Tor Button — Namoraka is now on the Tor Network! yippie! :)

hopefully i won't screw it up again :p

uninstalled via Tor pdf "Running the Tor client on Mac OS X" -- but not all of these files were on my system:

"If you're using a version of the Tor installer that doesn't come with the uninstall_tor_bundle script, you will need to manually delete the following:

● /Library/Tor ● /Library/Privoxy ● /usr/bin/tor ● /usr/bin/tor_resolve ● /var/log/tor ● /usr/share/man/man1/tor.1 ● /usr/share/man/man1/tor-resolve.1 ● /usr/share/man/man1/torify.1 ● /Library/Receipts/Privoxy.pkg/ ● /Library/Receipts/privoxyconf.pkg/ ● /Library/Receipts/Tor.pkg/ ● /Library/Receipts/torstartup.pkg/ ● /Library/StartupItems/Tor ● /Library/StartupItems/Privoxy"

reinstalled Tor Browser & Vidalia -- works :)
