This will ensure that arti sets its SOCKS port on 9150. Now we need to launch
Tor Browser and instruct it to use that SOCKS port:
Tor Browser and instruct it to use that SOCKS port.
On Linux:
$ TOR_SKIP_LAUNCH=1 TOR_SOCKS_PORT=9150 ./start-tor-browser.desktop
On OSX:
$ TOR_SKIP_LAUNCH=1 TOR_SOCKS_PORT=9150 /path/to/Tor\ Browser/Contents/MacOS/firefox
(You may need to adjust the actual path to wherever you have put your Tor
Browser.)
When you start Tor browser, it will give you a big red error page because
Arti isn't offering it a control port interface. But it will still work!
Try [check.torproject.org](https://check.torproject.org/) to be sure.
The resulting Tor Browser should be using arti. Note that onion services
won't work (Arti doesn't have them yet), and neither will any feature
depending on Tor's control-port protocol.
