Before running makepkg, you must do this:

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys D1483FA6C3C07136

See below for details.

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?

if only yaourt was capable of doing this by itself.

@yar @jugs Could you please make it so the profile doesn't get deleted on every update? The tor-browser package was already fixed.
You need to preserve the folder ~/.tor-browser-en/INSTALL/Browser/TorBrowser/Data/Browser
