i got tor file from tor.org and installed it using "yum install tor" and was successful Later i got vidalia 0.2.20-5.fc21.x86_64 now from my terminal i command "service tor start" but this is what it gives me:

I have tried everything i know from setting my mozilla settings to localhost, 127.0.0.1: 9150 vidalia on the other hand states that it cannot configure proxy settings:

You must start Tor as an Administrator / Super user.

Try service tor start

i established the root of the problem i didnot install/download 100%of all lib files for tor. i actually managed to get it working and placed a shortcut for starting tor rather than using service tor start command. thanks it was a silly mistake blind to me all that time

Bootstrapped 80%: Connecting to the Tor network Bootstrapped 85%: Finishing handshake with first hop Bootstrapped 90%: Establishing a Tor circuit Tor has successfully opened a circuit. Looks like client functionality is working. Bootstrapped 100%: Done New control connection opened from 127.0.0.1.
