Before marking as out-of-date, please check current release at

Upstream releases unconventionally: the new version is pushed to users via the ZeroNet network before that version is actually released (if you care, then please tell upstream this is not a good approach). If you want the very latest version, use the VCS package: zeronet-git

@theZorro266: the service file override shouldn't be needed, zeronet reacts fine to SIGTERM:

- Shutting down (reason: SIGTERM)...

The DataDirectoryGroupReadable appears to be working for me after startup, but at some later point the permissions become broken again (drwx------).

There is a Tor bug in upstream regarding dir permissions (not sure if related):

Also, there were problems with this flag in the past (since fixed):

Just installed the package. Two things I needed to do additionally:

# chmod g+rx /var/lib/tor # (i.e. DataDirectoryGroupReadable 1 didn't work for me)

And override the zeronet.service file with:


Because Python application

@SamuraiJack: these are shown in the install messages, but there was a bug in Tor < that broke permissions on the data dir:

For error "Tor Error: Status: Error ([Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/lib/tor/control_auth_cookie')" Append to your /etc/tor/torrc file:

CookieAuthentication 1 DataDirectoryGroupReadable 1 CookieAuthFileGroupReadable 1 ExtORPortCookieAuthFileGroupReadable 1 CacheDirectoryGroupReadable 1 CookieAuthFile /var/lib/tor/control_auth_cookie

Pacaur fails to install it with "Variable 'optdepends' has invalid characters '>='"

CupIvan commented on 2018-06-04 06:45

clear tor version ">=" from optdepends becouse of make package error

jpic commented on 2018-05-31 19:34

maybe this is because they use docker ?

ControlPort 9051 is missing from torrc, zeronet can't connect to tor without it, I updated the zeronet arch wiki page, maybe you could update the .install warnings to reflect this?
