Description:

TorK is an Anonymity Manager for KDE.

For information about Tor: http://tor.eff.org

TorK allows you to configure, run and update Tor. It also allows you to view the Tor network and choose how you would like to interact with the network.

TorK contains a number of unique/useful features:

* A graph of your tor and non-tor traffic.
* A quickstart page for launching torified applications.
        See https://sourceforge.net/project/screenshots.php?group_id=159836
* A hidden services wizard that allows you to create and publish hidden
services.
* A drag-and-drop view of the Tor network. Create, modify and close circuits.
Attach and detach streams manually from circuits. Click on servers to view
their full details.
* Exit node blocking/preferring by country and server name.
 See
https://sourceforge.net/project/screenshots.php?group_id=159836&ssid=45119
* Tor and Non-Tor traffic logs - showing you the traffic that is going through
Tor and the traffic that is not. The Tor traffic log maintains a record of
the circuit you used for each connection. Both logs are maintained in memory
only and can be flushed by the user at any time.
* A turn-on-and-off-able mini-view that shows you the traffic currently going
through Tor - including destination, status, and exit node's name and
country.
* Passive pop-ups alerting you to important Tor events, such as changes to  
your server status, DNS leaks, errors reported by Tor.
* Quick configuration - six default configurations available for getting Tor
running the simple and easy way.
* Full access to all Tor configuration options.

next time Tor is run.
o Detect netfilter properly on more recent linux kernels.
o German Translation updated by "Hans-J. Ullrich"

startup but there is no sign of it
o Add feature to let Tor shut down gracefully.
o Ensure server settings are set correctly when launching Tor from
Tork (as opposed to just connecting).

yes i can replicate this problem using that version of tor. it disappears when i click tools->download tor and download and compile the latest experimental version using the wizard.

could you try that and let me know how you get on?

I also get the Arkollon error on FC5:

make[3]: Entering directory `/mnt/Common/Downloads/Linux/tork/src/arkollon'
make[3]: *** No rule to make target `wizardbase.h', needed by `torkarkollon.o'. Stop.
make[3]: Leaving directory `/mnt/Common/Downloads/Linux/tork/src/arkollon'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1


The GZipped archive didn't extract correctly using Ark. Maybe the Arkollon files weren't extracted.

Can you try to get it working on FC5? TorK looks really good from the screenshots.

This looks pretty sweet. I didn't realise you could get that kind of runtime info out of tor :)

If I could suggest a feature... tor is pretty slow :) I have it set up so that privoxy is my main proxy (which then forwards to squid). However, for sites where I'm concerned about privacy, privoxy sends the requests to tor. It's very easy to setup; just a proxy line for each URI. For me, this makes tor usable. I think others would really appreciate a way to set this up easily :)

Tried it and got a compile problem. Something about arkollon. Isn't this an installer? I would like to try it, would be great to get a kubuntu package. Go on with this work. Thanks

weird. what does 'locate uic' give you? it may be you don't have the qt development tools installed, e.g. your distro's qt-devel package. are you compiling as root? that could be the problem...

'locate uic' gives a very log output, are you searching for some special things? qt development should be installed and I'm compiling as root. I'll do another try tomorrow.
