See below for details.

I seriously came here to ask the same thing as @nTia89 — what is the deal with using three hash functions? This is just silly antics that make it harder to manage manually, clutter the diff history, and all without providing any benefit. One of the SHA mechanisms is sufficient, if that doesn't completely solve the problem adding another one is not going to solve the problem, much less adding MD5. Please revert 5df1ca8a986e and use just GPG signature validation plus one set of SHA512 checksums.

@yar Why do you use three hash functions (md5sums, sha256sums and sha512sums)?

When /home is mounted with 'noexec' option tor browser fails to execute, I think it's because the executable is placed in /home. Would it be a way to install on '/'? I don't know if installing tor-browser at '/' could open a new security flaw

I cannot build tor-browser-en

Downloading the source files fails:

curl: (35) OpenSSL SSL_connect: SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL in connection to ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading Aborting...

[update 21-03] Problem seems to have solved itself.

Pinned keyserver seems to be down. Try this:

gpg --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys D1483FA6C3C07136

I downloaded, updated the keys, and ran "makepkg -sri" on this package. I cannot find the updated browser on my system.

If I run "./tor-browser/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/start-tor-browser", it runs version 6.0.8. If I run "./.tor-browser-en/INSTALL/Browser/start-tor-browser", it runs version 6.5.1.

Where is version 7.5 supposed to be? The find command finds no other instances of file start-tor-browser. Thank you.

Hi, when trying to fetch gpg keys I am getting an unclear error:

$gpg --keyserver --recv-keys D1483FA6C3C07136 gpg: keyserver receive failed: Invalid argument

What should I do?

In, please change the order in which the TB* vars are set and the args are parsed. You should only set TB_HOME_DIR and TB_REFRESH defaults before parsing args.

Edit: sorry, don't know how to escape italicizing _'s.

This package is broken in many different AUR helpers at the moment because of an error with the SSL certificate for (see below). Is there any workaround for this?

@LaughingMan tor-browser and tor-browser-en-us do that.

@yar, @jugs We should think to merge tor-browser-en and tor-browser-en-us. Please have a look at the source of the various tor-browser* I mantain. I revised the package's bash script and made it more portable. Would you like to be co-mantainers of tor-browser-en-us?
