Can I use Orbot with Windows 10?

Yes, Orbot is designed to work with Windows, Android, OSX and Linux. Orbot is different from Tor because Tor doesn't rely on being run by a web browser. Orbot (and Tor) provide a way to get around the restrictions of Tor by creating a kind of proxy between your computer and the web.

With Orbot, you won't be able to see any site that is blocked by your firewall, since Tor is used only as an intermediate relay between your computer and the sites. Orbot has been found to be a bit slower than Tor, since it has to act like a bridge between the two. However, as you use Orbot more, it will become a normal, faster Tor client.

Orbot has also been tested with iOS 8 on a jailbroken device. Will I have problems with websites that require Java or flash? Most of the time, yes. And that's why Orbot tries to disable Java and flash as soon as it can.

How do I find out which version of Tor I'm running? The program that tells you this is running. If you want to find the build you're running, run Orbot in a Terminal and check the version string: Orbot version %v. How do I install plugins for Orbot? Orbot already comes with support for some plugins, and you can find other plugins here. I tried to install the Orbot-Plugin-AutoRelay and the Orbot-Plugin-Ngrep but they didn't work. What do I do? If Orbot has problems opening your plugin, try to start it with the -d parameter. This will start Orbot in "debug" mode, and you'll be able to see all the messages that are logged by the plugin.

Ikonia tonyyarusso: I'd be interested to see the error. Ikonia tonyyarusso: or a screenshot of the error. Tonyyarusso ikonia: ikonia tonyyarusso: looks like a conflict between the gimp and the gimp-data package. Ikonia tonyyarusso: is this a fresh install

Tonyyarusso ikonia: No, it's a clean 16.04.1 install.

Ikonia tonyyarusso: can you do "sudo apt-get update" and pastebin the output please. Ikonia tonyyarusso: can you do "sudo apt-get install gimp-data" please and pastebin the output. Ikonia tonyyarusso: ok, so the gimp-data package is trying to pull in the gimp version from the archive, but the gimp version is already installed, so it's a conflict. Ikonia tonyyarusso: the error is from the gimp-data package, not the gimp package. Ikonia tonyyarusso: so the gimp-data package should be removed. Tonyyarusso ikonia: Okay, how do I do that? ikonia tonyyarusso: sudo apt-get remove gimp-data. Tonyyarusso ikonia: I'm not sure I understand. The error message is from the gimp-data package, not the gimp package.

Ikonia tonyyarusso: the gimp-data package is trying to pull in the gimp version from the archive, but the gimp version is already installed, so it's a conflict. Tonyyarusso ikonia: Ah, okay.
