So what do I have to do? I tried service apparmor force-reload and get this:

Code: Select all
davek@debian:~$ su
Password:
root@debian:/home/davek# service apparmor force-reload
bash: service: command not found
root@debian:/home/davek#


Also tried to up load screen shot and get internal error and can't upload to forum.

I don't see it. What am I looking for and where is the correct command?

... tried again went back to prompt with no error this time. But still a black screen. Tor works on every other distro I use except Debian. And I like using Debian the most! Too bad.

If you want to use "service" (or better, "systemctl"), then you need to be root and have the root PATH, hence "su -" instead of "su".
The service you want to restart is "apparmor" and not "aaparmor".

Hope that's clear enough now.

@vinoman,

You restarted apparmor *after* applying the patch?

i.e. did you edit /etc/apparmor.d/local/torbrowser.Browser.firefox
to add/edit:
Code: Select all
owner /{dev,run}/shm/org.mozilla.*.* rw,


(see https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=942901)

Note that I can't tell you exactly what to do, as I don't use apparmor.
If you patched the above file and restarted apparmor (or just reboot) and the problem is still not solved, then you should add a comment in the 942901 bug report.

After adding that line and rebooting... Tor is working!

Thank you for all your help.
