Tor is a connection-based low-latency anonymous communication system.

Clients choose a source-routed path through a set of relays, and
negotiate a "virtual circuit" through the network, in which each relay
knows its predecessor and successor, but no others. Traffic flowing
down the circuit is decrypted at each relay, which reveals the
downstream relay.

Basically, Tor provides a distributed network of relays. Users bounce
their TCP streams (web traffic, ftp, ssh, etc) around the relays, and
recipients, observers, and even the relays themselves have difficulty
learning which users connected to which destinations.

This package enables only a Tor client by default, but it can also be
configured as a relay and/or a hidden service easily.

Client applications can use the Tor network by connecting to the local
socks proxy interface provided by your Tor instance. If the application
itself does not come with socks support, you can use a socks client
such as torsocks.

Note that Tor does no protocol cleaning on application traffic. There
is a danger that application protocols and associated programs can be
induced to reveal information about the user. Tor depends on Torbutton
and similar protocol cleaners to solve this problem. For best
protection when web surfing, the Tor Project recommends that you use
the Tor Browser Bundle, a standalone tarball that includes static
builds of Tor, Torbutton, and a modified Firefox that is patched to fix
a variety of privacy bugs.

To have system settings to control tor proxy, coderus was kindly to the assistance 1). This obsoletes the tor-switch package.

solved! in my jolla there was installed your openssl 1.0.0 but updating it doesn't work, so I've uninstalled it and then I've installed version 1.0.1, then there were no error installing tor and tor-switch. Many thanks! Bye :-)

How do I enable obfs3?

I cannot update to tor-, got the same error like on trying to install davfs2:

"Status: dep-resolution failed. Extra details:  tor-, but this requirement cannot be provided."

"pkcon search name libcrypto" shows me three packages referring to openssl 1.0.1. (ONE at last digit)  Is this related to the message?

Reinstalling openssl should do the trick.

NielDK's picture

Please install openssl-libs

robomike's picture

Well, I found the error.

"pkcon get-depends openssl" showed me a choice of three packages, and told me, which of them were installed and which not:

[root@Jolla nemo]# pkcon get-depends openssl
Es passt mehr als ein Paket:
1. openssl-1.0.1h-1.4.1.armv7hl [installed]
2. openssl-1.0.1h-1.armv7hl [openrepos-NielDK]
3. openssl-1.0.1h-1.4.1.source [jolla]

So, I removed the installed package and installed yours instead, and everything works fine. But please tell: why the incompatibility?

Thanks for your response and for your work anyway.

Hej Niel, will you be updating to the latest version?

jokelap's picture

Now it works. :) I installed it #Warehouse help. A great program. Thank you so much. :)

jokelap's picture

I tried to install directly #file browser. Not #Warehouse to install the program. I did not have a previous version.

jokelap's picture

I can not install the program. Indicates a problem #Tor installation. All should be fine. How do I get it installed?

NielDK's picture

if all is fine, it installs ;kr

Did you enable my repo in warehouse app?

Did you uninstall any previously installed version ?

Many thanks for this

Could this have an option to route all the phone’s traffic through Tor network? Not only the default web browser. Orbot for Android has this option (requires root privileges).

NielDK's picture

it will be able to work systemwide once the proxy settings for WLAN actually is fully working, I have posed this to Jolla on many occassions, but, they so far ignores completely.


You can get it working using this transparent proxy, and let tordns use this


or, use iptables rules.

Hello, thank you for this opportunity. 
I have a problem, I think. I click the icon, making it green, but when I open the browser tells me that the configuration of tor has been completed. 
I have already uninstalled and reinstalled but nothing. excuse the inconvenience and thank you.

NielDK's picture

If you are reffering to the browser screen when opening - then its just letting you know that you are using tor - or not.

Otherwise, no idea what you mean :)

Added the ability to start/stop tor by pressing the tor desktop icon.

The desktop icon will change colour red=stopped and green=started according to status.

Please UN-INSTALL  an previous versions before installing version, also the unstable alpha-version !
