    Nice one loko. I edited the patch as you said and the plugin compiled fine. I had to move the compiled OTR plugin from /usr/lib/gaim to /usr/local/lib/gaim to get the plugin to show up in Gaim.

    Re: HOW TO surf anonymous

    I'm not sure what you mean. Tor listens for SOCKS5 connections on 9050. Many client applications don't use the SOCKS5 protocol correctly (and leak DNS queries), hence Privoxy is used to safely route...

    Re: HOW TO surf anonymous

    cyclister, to configure privoxy, you need to edit its config file and insert the single line


    forward-socks4a / localhost:9050 .

    'thought': try this command to set the permissions on that directory:
