Urg… please never do that. You should not run applications with the same
privileges as Tor.

What you want is to add your current user to the “debian-tor” group:

    sudo adduser $USER debian-tor

Then arm should be able to connect to the system-wide Tor daemon
unless you have changed the default Tor configuration.
