I just installed tor, privoxy and proxychains on Ubuntu 13.10, but they are not experiencing any problems. My problem is based on a .desktop file I created as I think it actually doesn't work properly. The content of that file is:
[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Terminal=false Name=Switch IP address Icon=/usr/desktop/icons/switchip.png Exec=service tor restart
service tor restart is used to obtain new fake IP address, but when I run it from a terminal, it works. When I click on icon on launcher (which is .desktop file above) it does not take any effect. What I missed or did wrong?
