Hi, I'm trying to setup a tor server for my network, but I can't install torsocks using this tutorial: ( But I can't get it to work... I'm a total noob, so please be patient with me =)

This is the error i get when trying to sudo make install

Making install in src

test -z "/usr/local/bin"
.././install-sh -c -d "/usr/local/bin"

/bin/sh /Users/homefolder/Downloads/torsocks-1.1 2/install-sh -c -m 755 'torsocks' '/usr/local/bin/torsocks'

/Users/homefolder/Downloads/torsocks-1.1: /Users/homefolder/Downloads/torsocks-1.1: is a directory

/bin/sh /Users/homefolder/Downloads/torsocks-1.1 2/install-sh -c -m 755 'usewithtor' '/usr/local/bin/usewithtor'

/Users/homefolder/Downloads/torsocks-1.1: /Users/homefolder/Downloads/torsocks-1.1: is a directory
make[2]: * [install-binSCRIPTS] Error 126

The torsocks bug tracker is on Google Code at

Your problem appears to be that you have somehow put the torsocks source code in a directory whose name contains a space (“torsocks-1.1 2”), and that breaks some of the torsocks build scripts.
