I update to Ubuntu 22.04 and Tor Browser is not working anymore. I removed Tor Browser and when I tried to re-install it by running "torbrowser-launcher", I get the following error message:

TypeError: arguments did not match any overloaded call:

Thanks for your help!

  • Did you try to update Tor to latest 0.3.5 version? try to run ./build_deb.sh again. Apr 27 at 12:22

You can fix this by going into the __init__.py file and changing the lines (98) in /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/torbrowser_launcher/:

            (desktop.width() - window_size.width()) / 2,
            (desktop.height() - window_size.height()) / 2


            int((desktop.width() - window_size.width()) / 2),
            int((desktop.height() - window_size.height()) / 2)

Another solution is posted on the official GitHub: https://github.com/micahflee/torbrowser-launcher/issues/636 (which in general does the same)

Both solutions are valid. I assume it will be fixed in the next update.

Explanation gui.move expects two integers, but can get two floats from the division. Therefore explicit casting to int is needed.

  • Has a bug been filed? Until a bug is filed the developers can't know a fix is required to be made.
