I've recently installed toxic (tox-based terminal chat client) and am attempting to route it through Tor for extra privacy. I followed this tutorial for installing the tor service. But, when I try and start toxic with forced TCP going through the localhost Tor proxy, toxic will start, but will remain offline.

How can I fix this? I can provide screenshots/configurations if necessary, I really just want to get this up and running.

  • How exactly are you running it? torify toxic? – Byte Commander Sep 27 '16 at 0:52
  • toxic --force-tcp --SOCKS5-proxy 9050 – The Defalt Sep 28 '16 at 1:20
  • When I run torify toxic I get this error: Toxic session aborted with error code 3 (tox_new returned fatal error) – The Defalt Sep 28 '16 at 1:28
