So far, so good with one little glitch with Tor

I use Tor browser bundle (currently version 4.01) for all browsing.

Starting it by double-clicking on the start script works fine in Trisquel 6.01 (using it as I type this) and Trisquel 7.0 mini (on a netbook), but not Trisquel 7.0 (on a third computer for testing). With 7.0, the script opens in gedit. Opening a terminal and running the script gives a syntax error: unexpected "(" but works in the other two operating systems.

Weird... Trisquel 7.0 or Tor issue?

Otherwise, 7.0 and 7.0 mini run perfectly without issues on my machines (sames ones I've used since 4.0).

Nice work (and thanks)!

In Nautilus, click on the gear in the top right for the menu and hit Preferences. Under the Behavior tab you'll find a section for Executable Text Files. It's set to "View executable files when opened", which is the problem. Set it to run them or ask each time, whatever your preference. =)

How do you run the tor browser? Have you tried it running this way: ./start-tor-browser

That was giving me an error. Got it working now. Thanks.

You would have to have a terminal open for Tor Browser by doing it that way. He was asking about how to make scripts run without a terminal.

Now for another problem.. I try to add Tor Browser to the menu and it removes the entry every time I point it to a script. If I do it during creation, the entry never even shows up on the list. If I just name the entry during creation, then edit it, I can choose an icon and it will accept the edit, but if I point it to the script to start Tor Browser, it removes the entry entirely. Very strange.

I upgraded the last machine to 7.0 with no issues. Everything works. 3 for 3! Whoo hoo!

You can also create a shortcut to open TBB. Just drag the Web Browser
launcher from the Applications Menu into a directory and change it to
have the correct path, such as:

/home/bob/tor/tor-browser_en-US/start-tor-browser

You may need to make the launcher executable in permissions for it to work.

I think that you mean a symlink. There are no shortcuts in GNU/Linux or other UNIX-like systems I'm aware of.

GNOME has .launcher shortcuts that aren't symlinks and are typically
used by the Applications Menu.

I think KDE has its own launcher format as well.

.desktop files. /usr/share/applications/ is full of them.

They aren't as simple as symlinks, though.
