 Hi, a couple of questions to understand your problem better:

 - To be clear you are installing each component (Vidalia, Firefox, Tor,
 etc) by hand with the package manager? Or are you using the Tor Browser

 - Could you provide Vidalia's advanced log for your failure so that we can
 see what the specific problem is?

 - Have you only updated Vidalia? Or Tor too? Tor's configuration to work
 with Vidalia in Debian and Ubuntu has changed, so an old Vidalia won't
 work with the latest Tor package in that Linux distribution, and neither
 will a new Vidalia with an old Tor. Because their configuration isn't

 I'm adding dererk to this conversation, since this seems more likely a
 configuration issue rather than a code.
