usually u should run

sudo make install

but I recommend you to install it through the synaptic
there u can install vidalia, a very usefull gui

Ohh it looks weird.
Probably I would uninstall tor manually from the konsole and vidalia from synaptic. And then install both tor and vidalia from the synaptic. Hope it works

seeing the picture you have attached it seems that the tor is working and is connected (because u have a green onion). if you do not insist to use the gui probably you can use it the way is now. all the settings you need can be entered here


(at least on my machine but definitely you have somewhere the torrc file)

good luck

how i can do with torrc ?
what 's command for use ?

first u have to find the file torrc
in my system it is in /home/USER/.vidalia/torrc

then you can access it with any text editor
ie: sudo gedit /home/USER/.vidalia/torrc

in the file you can set your ports and a few more things.

but again, it seems your tor is working. how do you use it? with tor button add-on in firefox? if yes you can turn on the button and test if it really works
