I did search and it turned up things not related to my problem.
Sure, I can download tor (browser) separately and install it which is what I have done with all Parrot versions up until 4.10. However for first time in 4.10 it downloaded tor after I select tor in the menu. It verifies it, then the box closes. I launch the updater, click on install, but nothing happens. That’s it. Prior to 4.10 this method has never worked.
If you can find a solution to that problem in here then you beat me.
Its probably easier to do it as I always have. I dont get a welcoming vibe here for only I think my second or third post.
I don’t know what else I can say. For the last two versions, prior to 4.10 I have not been able to install Tor at all from the drop down menu in Parrot that has the two options of Tor Browser and Tor updater/launcher. I don’t remember the exact error messages that I was getting but from memory they were similar to those being reported by others in the forums. I just downloaded Tor manually and installed from there, made my own link to it and didn’t worry about the Parrot options for Tor.
So then comes 4.10. This time, as I said, I can click on Tor in the menu (as I did above), but this time it downloads Tor and verifies the signature. It never got this far with the other versions. But it is not installed at this point. I launch the updater/launcher where there is a button to install Tor, clicking this does not install it for me. So I have a system where it appears that Tor has been downloaded and verified, but it doesn’t install.
That’s it. Nothing more, nothing less. I will most likely just what I’ve done in the past and download, verify and install myself. I will say that, aside from this issue, Parrot has no bugs for me. It works perfectly and has been a welcome improvement from Kodachi that I dabbled with for a couple of versions.
