Can't run Tor from unpriv acct on Mac OS X
From Lion (OS X 10.7.3), I installed Tor recently, and it runs fine from my privileged account. However, each time I try to start Tor from my unprivileged account, it fails with the following message in a "pop-up" window:
Vidalia can't find out how to talk to Tor because it can't access this file: ../../Contents/Resources/Data/Tor/port.conf Here's the last error message: Permission denied
In the message log (Advanced), the following appears:
Feb 25 04:32:08.908 [Notice] Tor v0.2.2.35 (git-b04388f9e7546a9f). This is experimental software. Do not rely on it for strong anonymity. (Running on Darwin x86_64) Feb 25 04:32:08.909 [Warning] Could not open "../../Library/Vidalia/torrc": Permission denied Feb 25 04:32:08.909 [Warning] Unable to open configuration file "../../Library/Vidalia/torrc". Feb 25 04:32:08.910 [Error] Reading config failed--see warnings above.
I see that a similar bug description has been filed at least once previously, but was dropped due to lack of information. I need to use Tor, and will gladly support resolving this in whatever way I can.
