Default arm's torrc path is "~/.arm/torrc", how can a change it to "/etc/tor/torrc"? I has searched in arm's documentation but can not find a solution.

Arm is obsolete nowdays - it was renamed to nyx and the development continued - nowdays there's no need in torrc, only control protocol is used. add to your nyx this argument:

The config path in command line arguments is a config for nyx, not for tor. Default one is looked for at ~/.nyx/config file

And see the full list of config args in the sample nyxrc provided by the developers

  • Why is nyx not on torproject home page? Why do projects like whonix still use the arm as controller tor? There is little reference to nyx on the internet, so it's harder to work with. – Roberto Oct 1 '17 at 2:33
  • Whonix is as old and obsolete as Mammoth, so I'm not surprised. Arm is obsoleted a year+ ago – Alexey Vesnin Oct 1 '17 at 2:48
  • I checked the latest released versions and got the following result: nyx version 1.4.6-dev (released April 28, 2011). arm version 1.4.5.0 (released April 28, 2012) It seems that the latest version of the arm was released after the last version of nyx. I dont understand. – Roberto Oct 1 '17 at 8:53
  • Take a look at torproject.org - there's a link for Arm, yes, pointing at atagar.com/arm - but there git repo and binary name has changed to nyx. It's confusing, I know - but here gitweb.torproject.org/nyx.git is where it all resides, last update less than 2 days from now – Alexey Vesnin Oct 2 '17 at 14:02
