10.6: Run Privoxy 3.0.16 on Snow Leopard
Authored by: Zeitkind on Jan 10, '11 05:02:44AM
Works with 3.0.17
in _short_: (READ the original hint!)
user@mac:/ # sudo bash
(password)
root@mac:/ # cd /Users/username/Downloads/privoxy-3.0.17-stable 
root@mac:~/Downloads/privoxy-3.0.17-stable # autoheader
root@mac:~/Downloads/privoxy-3.0.17-stable # autoconf
root@mac:~/Downloads/privoxy-3.0.17-stable # ./configure

## As already noted, the make command was missing in hint:
root@mac:~/Downloads/privoxy-3.0.17-stable # make

## Kill the prob. running version or install will fail!
root@mac:~/Downloads/privoxy-3.0.17-stable # killall privoxy

root@mac:~/Downloads/privoxy-3.0.17-stable # make install
root@mac:~/Downloads/privoxy-3.0.17-stable # launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.privoxy.plist
Comment: Done as root, you can use sudo if you like. Needs to have 3.0.16 be installed before (update!), otherwise create the plist and user as in original hint.

I've put the shell commands from this thread into a simple script that works with privoxy 3.0.17 on 10.7 Lion:

10.6: Run Privoxy 3.0.16 on Snow Leopard
Authored by: jimsander on Jul 22, '11 08:14:26PM

Any chance for some quick troubleshooting help on this?

Had everything installed and working under Snow Leopard. Upgraded to Lion and it all went away. Re-installed and everything works except the launchd control... but I can start manually via "/usr/local/sbin/privoxy /usr/local/etc/privoxy/config"

Before I start manually (and after actually) 'launchctl list' shows this...
"- 1 org.privoxy.launchd.privoxy"
No PID, so (surprise) it's not actually running.

Checked the console messages and not seeing anything.

Where should I look next?

10.6: Run Privoxy 3.0.16 on Snow Leopard

I have a similar problem with the launchctl command

I followed the instructions here to install Privoxy 3.0.17 on a macbookpro one year ago and all went fine. I am now trying to do exactly the same to install 3.0.17 on a new iMac. When trying to run the launchctl command, it doesn't work.

The last step of the hint doesn't work, Privoxy will not load. When entering "sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.privoxy.plist"


I got the following message:

*************************************************
launchctl: Dubious permissions on file (skipping): /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.privoxy.plist
nothing found to load
*************************************************

I still can start Privoxy manually using "/usr/local/sbin/privoxy /usr/local/etc/privoxy/config"

Is there a permission problem ?
Can anyone help ?

Thank you

(Running Mac os x 10.6.8)

Quite sure, check the permissions and make them the same as the other plists. If you simply copy the plists as a user, it will be owned by you and not by root etc.
