Before running makepkg, you must do this (as normal user):

$ gpg --auto-key-locate nodefault,wkd --locate-keys torbrowser@torproject.org

If you want to update tor-browser from AUR without AUR helpers you can run in a terminal:

$ tor-browser -u

@Ucak I have this problem too, so I decided to create an AUR package which uses tor service to download sources, you just have to make sure tor service is up and working.

Please give me feedback on this package, Thanks.

There are countries which internet is ~broken~ censored, so they (including me) can not use that upstream link (https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html). There was a github link for downloading it, a mirror. I think it was this https://github.com/TheTorProject/gettorbrowser but i am not sure. It may be a good idea to use the github link for this or creating a new aur package.

Also, I'm getting the following error from the error log of tor-browser:

I have no idea why it tries to bind 9050 ¯_(ツ)_/¯

can someone help?!

I get:

==> ERROR: Integrity checks (sha256) differ in size from the source array.

how i can solve this

Should gtk3 be a dependency? I was left mildly confused when tor-browser failed silently on a fresh install, until I tried --debug.

@aminvakil I stopped tor and launched tor-browser. However, it seems that the latest tor-browser has started a tor instance which occupies 127.0.0.1:9050

@grufo, thank you for all the effort packaging the browser!

grufo commented on 2019-10-25 21:34

@gancho Good catch! Fixed.

--grufo

gancho commented on 2019-10-25 19:56

@grufo Unfortunately using the --dir argument this way is not working - there is an error at line 167 that the directory is not existing.

The variables TB_APP_DIR, TB_LOG_FILE and TB_VER_FILE must be set after the for loop, because there the value of TB_HOME_DIR is modified to use provided --dir argument. Later at line 166 the TB_APP_DIR directory is created

grufo commented on 2019-10-25 01:18

@gancho

Yes, it is possible. But the question is: Why?

You can always do:

tor-browser --dir=/tmp/tb

--grufo
