Upgrading Kubuntu to Feisty Beta Breaks Privoxy
While I fully intend to go over my full experience upgrading to the latest development release of Kubuntu, one of the things that I first noticed was that Privoxy didn't seem to work or to be speaking with Tor, preventing me from that lovely "anonymous" browsing experience. I noticed that in the upgrade the ever important "
forward-socks4a / localhost:9050 ." line in
/etc/privoxy/config wasn't in the upgraded version (actually, it shouldn't be). Apparently during the upgrade, I told it to clobber my config file with the one distributed, saving my old version (luckily) to
/etc/privoxy/config.dpkg-old. Once that I added that line back, I'm now able to surf a bit more safely.
