torbrowser script bug on whonix disposable vm


#1

Hello,
this happened today for the first time. I launched torbrowser (hardened version) from a whonix-ws disposable-vm terminal but i keep getting this output:

> user@host:~$ torbrowser
> [ERROR] [torbrowser] ###########################################################
> ## torbrowser script bug.
> ## No panic. Nothing is broken. Just some rare condition
> ## has been hit. Try again later. There is likely a

The only changes i have made were some dom0 and Fedora 24 updates.

Non-ideal tb-starter error message, which will be improved in Whonix 14. It means that Tor Browser existed with code 134.

To analyze this further, please open a DispVM konsole. (As per https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Qubes/Disposable_VM#cli.)

Then try to manually start Tor Browser.

cd ~/.tb/tor-browser
./start-tor-browser.desktop

Thank you for the answer.
Anyway it looks like it fixed itself without doing anything. Launched it from the console without any errors. If it will happen again i will try your tip.
