    RE: How to get Tor & Vidalia to change ip address
    Well I read people were having issues with Ubuntu 10.10 and they suggested just keeping 8.04 if it was working fine. So is 11.04 better and has it been working good for you? I'm not to Linux savvy, I usually just fix things by googling the problems - and other than Tor, everything seems to be working fine. One of the main programs I got working on Ubuntu is Virtual Machine, so I can run a program on windows. If I upgrade to 11.04, will I have to set that up again, or does it save all my programs? Also, I've had problems in the past getting videos to play (like on Youtube), but I have that fixed now. I worry that if I upgrade I may lose that capability again and have to figure it out. Thanks for any advice.

    How to get Tor & Vidalia to change ip address
    OS: Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Comp: Dell 1420 Browser: Firefox 5.0 I installed Tor and Vidalia using the instructions here: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/howto-inst...in-ubuntu.html When I start Vidalia, under "Tor Status" it has the green onion and says "Tor is running." And I have the green onion up on the right on my Ubuntu toolbar. But when I check my ip here: http://www.whatismyip.com/ It's the same as it was before. I installed Tor so that I can use a proxy to get a different ip ... so what am I doing wrong - or what do I need to do to get a different ip? I'm new to Tor and Vidalia, and still a novice Ubuntu user, so would appreciate any help in getting another ip. Also, is there a way for me to choose the city of the ip I'm getting through Tor?
