Before running makepkg, you must do this:

$ gpg --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys 0x4E2C6E8793298290

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

$ tor-browser -u

could you add other sources like github for people that have tor blocked and another one for people that have github blocked if there was a timeout error like

Apparently gtk3 is required.

If it is not installed, tor-browser just doesn't start. The command exits with code 255 with no further output given. If the provided "firefox" executable is run directly, we get:

XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /home/gsi/.tor-browser/app/Browser/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Couldn't load XPCOM.

Icon should be just tor-browser, not the full path. Otherwise, icon themes will not work.

Trying to get the new gpg key always returns gpg: keyserver receive failed: No data for me...

I had the same problem as mcnesium but on Arch, so it's not specific to derivatives.

Pryka commented on 2018-09-06 19:49


No I didn't. Still don't understand why people using Arch derivatives ask for help here intend on their own IRC/Forums etc.

@mcnesium: This package preserves your profile across updates. Deleting/renaming ~/.tor-browser and starting from a clean slate fixed the problem for me.

@Pryka: Looks like you missed your stated goal...
