this is the output when I enter tor in terminal:

Aug 08 04:50:34.945 [notice] Tor 0.4.0.5 running on Linux with Libevent 2.1.10-stable, OpenSSL 1.1.1c, Zlib 1.2.11, Liblzma 5.2.4, and Libzstd 1.4.1.

  • [warn] Directory /var/lib/tor cannot be read: Permission denied & [err] Reading config failed--see warnings above. -- so... it is an permission problem. more information to help you would be nice: how did you install Tor? which program/command did you use? etc. – DJCrashdummy Aug 17 at 18:51
