TorApplet is a simple GNOME applet for managing and monitoring the basic activities of the Tor daemon.
· GTK+ version 2.8.x
You can install TorApplet from source with the usual commands:
tar jxf torapplet0-.tag.bz2
make install [as root]
killall bonobo-activation-server; killall gnome-panel
If you downloaded the source from the SVN repository, you must use ./autogen.sh before the ./configure (it requires autoconf 2.59 and automake/aclocal 1.9).
Depending on your distribution and tor installation, the tor init script to specify in ./configure can be /etc/init.d/tor or /etc/rc.d/init.d/tor If you want to start/stop/restart the Tor daemon from the applet, you should configure sudo to allow your account to do it.
You can specify the standard ./configure command line options. If you specify with the --prefix option an installation directory other than /usr (the default is, as usual, /usr/local), make sure that the $prefix/lib/bonobo/servers is included in the bonobo-activation search path: you may need to set BONOBO_ACTIVATION_PATH environment variable or to edit /etc/bonobo-activation/bonobo-activation-config.xml
