Tor Browser won't start

A couple of days ago I received an update for the Tor Browser. Ever since that time I am unable to start it, nothing happens. I have removed it and reinstalled from the boutique but still NG.

Do you get an error message when running it from the terminal?

Hi Don
I just installed it in 16.04.2 using the boutique and it boots up just fine.
Try booting it in terminal and see if it gives any errors.

Touche ouroumov touche :grinning:

Here are the results:

cp: cannot stat ‘/home/don/.tor-browser-en/INSTALL/Browser/TorBrowser/Data/Browser/profile.default/search.json’: No such file or directory

Run this command once:

touch ~/.tor-browser-en/INSTALL/Browser/TorBrowser/Data/Browser/profile.default/search.json

I ran the command and then ran Tor Browser. All OK. That command fixed it, Thanks

I’ve now added this to the list of common problems affecting Xenial.
