how to configure tor on Artix??

hey

when i try to connect to tor using terminal i get this:
Code: [Select]
Feb 15 11:07:58.240 [notice] Tor 0.3.4.9 (git-4ac3ccf2863b86e7) running on Linux with Libevent 2.1.8-stable, OpenSSL 1.1.1a, Zlib 1.2.11, Liblzma 5.2.4, and Libzstd 1.3.8.

I suspect it's something that i have to configure in tor/torc. I have got newest gnu icecat on my laptop, that has tor plugin that i can use if i have got tor configured on there.
stuff like man tor or configuration has lots of stuff that i don't understand. Is it hard to configure it???
if i duckduckgo tor configuration i see lots of guides need other stuff to be downloaded like dnsmasq. Is it necessary?? :)

thanks

In the soviet union you don't do the internet, the internet does you.

You go on internet more than you think you do, not just by browsing.
One thing that is important with using tor is to know how to use it, which means you should learn from those that make it.
Is your time accurate on your pc?  Time stamps that deviate from "the clock" are identifiers.  The more you deviate the easier to be identified.

Watch out for the icedog, he is mean.

wuut??

yeah i already have it this tor thing ;p. well last week they deleted my blizzard account where i had diablo 3. today my steam accounmt has been deleted after applying for deletion 30 days ago ;). so my only non linux non libre game game i play at the moment is oldschool runescape but the client i use to play it is open source - runelite. + single player games i own for windows. And that's it ;). And i also don't go on youtube, i don't read news, i don't google, im not using facebook instagram, well i use twitter though but not as myself but as guest. My brain is free of bad, brainwashing information instead of reading gossips about politicans or depressing facts about global warming, species of animals being wiped out from this planet, i can read man pages in terminal or just enjoy what i have got on my laptop and what i see...
