bash-4.1$ start-vidalia

This gives an error:

./App/vidalia: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.1.0.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I'm running TBB on slackware 13.37, and the library does not exist (I've done a search across the whole system). Slackware uses openssl instead.

  • I wonder if we should delete this question, now that the bundle it speaks about has been obsolete for years? Mar 9, 2016 at 1:17

There's no start-vidalia script in the current version of Tor Browser Bundle, so I don't know what you're running.

Before doing anything else, obtain a current copy of Tor Browser Bundle.

The official instructions say:

To run the Tor Browser Bundle, execute the start-tor-browser script:


Trying to start with a different script, even if present, will not work on your older system, as it doesn't have the necessary libraries (which are shipped with TBB instead).

  • actually i got it figured out....yes i have a current version of TBB and it is running. but i also wanted vidalia, and there is a vidalia standalone made for this version of TBB (mentioned here in the TBB faq trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/… ).... as it turns out the vidalia-standalone is missing two libraries, and they need to be copied over from TBB's libraries.... i did get vidalia-standalone working....
