 Hi all!!
 I hope this is the correct way to contact the Tor Vidalia bundle
 developers; if not, I'm sorry, but this is the only way I have to
 communicate with someone.
 I usu Ubuntu 11.10 64bit. Yesterday I update my Vidalia version from the
 repository below.

 deb     http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org oneiric main

 Now, when I start Vidalia, I have an error message; this is the content of

 dic 14 14:28:28.306 [Notice] Tor v0.2.2.34 (git-c55c166e73d500af). This is
 experimental software. Do not rely on it for strong anonymity. (Running on
 Linux x86_64)
 dic 14 14:28:28.307 [Notice] Initialized libevent version 1.4.14b-stable
 using method epoll. Good.

 dic 14 14:28:28.308 [Warning] Before Tor can create a control socket in
 "/var/run/tor/control", the directory "/var/run/tor" needs to exist, and
 to be accessible only by the user account that is running Tor.  (On some
 Unix systems, anybody who can list a socket can conect to it, so Tor is
 being careful.)
 dic 14 14:28:28.308 [Notice] Closing partially-constructed listener Socks

 dic 14 14:28:28.308 [Error] Reading config failed--see warnings above.

 Then I created the tor directory in /var/run/ and changed his owner to me,
 as request by vidalia. As a result I have the same error and the only
 change in logfile is in bolded text, changed in
 dic 14 14:32:19.405 [Warning] Permissions on directory /var/run/tor are
 too permissive.

 Previous version was full functionally.

 Thanks a lot for your hard work. I hope this mail can help you to improve
 program :)
 Kinda regards
