How can I start Tor from boot?

Postby RevMike » Tue Aug 30, 2011 6:36 am

I have installed Tor and Vidalia and it works OK, but have to start Tor by starting Vidalia manually.
Is there a way of getting Tor to load automatically at startup? I always shut down my PC after using it. Thanks,

I think the easiest way would be to add it to the /etc/rs.local file

Open a terminal and type

sudo gedit /etc/rs.local (if you use gnome)
sudo mousepad /etc/rs.local (if you use xfce)

add the path to tor above the word exit and save the file. Reboot to test it.
