Maybe a chmod problem?

Hi ef86

How did you update your torbrowser? Could you please provide the output of both command.

ls -l ~/.tb/tor-browser/start-tor-browser.desktop

ls -l ~/.tb/tor-browser/Browser/start-tor-browser

You might need to make those files executable by running

chmod +x /home/user/.tb/tor-browser/Browser/start-tor-browser /home/user/.tb/tor-browser/start-tor-browser /home/user/.tb/tor-browser/start-tor-browser.desktop

Hi ef86

madaidan had the right idea on this. Setting the execute bit on those files should resolve the issue.

Note: sudo is not required.

chmod +x /home/user/.tb/tor-browser/Browser/start-tor-browser /home/user/.tb/tor-browser/start-tor-browser /home/user/.tb/tor-browser/start-tor-browser.desktop

I’m not sure what that error is. I’ve even checked the source for the exit code “126” and couldn’t find anything.

Maybe @Patrick knows something?

126 Command invoked cannot execute

example: /dev/null

Permission problem or command is not an executable

Please provide the output of the following for debugging.

ls -la ~/.tb/tor-browser/start-tor-browser.desktop ; \
ls -la ~/.tb/tor-browser/Browser/start-tor-browser ; \
ls -la ~/.tb/tor-browser/Browser/start-tor-browser.desktop

And then try this fix.

chmod +x ~/.tb/tor-browser/start-tor-browser.desktop ; \
chmod +x ~/.tb/tor-browser/Browser/start-tor-browser ; \
chmod +x ~/.tb/tor-browser/Browser/start-tor-browser.desktop

You can also try this:

sudo chown --recursive user:user /home/user

Ohh. I thought the exit code was something implemented in tb-starter rather than bash itself.

For debugging! All three only give a “<” and nothing else. Than i try the next three for fix. The first two gives an “<”, the third works normal and gives normal output.

After this, nothing changed. Do not work for me!
