After doing some more research it seems as though Polipo is a better choice over Privoxy for Tor so this is my failed attempt so far.
Out of the box polipo won't start
/etc/rc.d/polipo start [FAIL]<
I followed the polipo wiki up to changing the /etc/rc.d/polipo
su -c "/usr/bin/$DAEMON $ARGS" -s /bin/sh polipo >/dev/null 2>&1
Now it just hangs on busy when i try to run as regular user
And it just fails when i sudo it. Help!
Ouput of sudo polipo -v |grep socks
socksParentProxy atom (none) SOCKS parent proxy (host:port) socksProxyType atom socks5 One of socks4a or socks5 socksUserName atom (empty) SOCKS4a user name

You could try using the git package available on the aur..been working for me for a while.
Build the polipo-git aur package, but replace line 19 (the gitroot line) with the following:
I have tried the polipo-git from the AUR, but it gives me a build() error everytime.
So I tried downloading git clone git://git.wifi.pps.jussieu.fr/polipo, but I dont know how to start it. I did gitk, and a window for polipo setting came up.
Anyways I cleaned out all the polipo stuff and installed it through pacman again.
If I just type in polipo in command line this is the output I get.
Disabling disk cache: No such file or directory Established listening socket on port 8123.
I tried configuring tor with
HTTP proxy:127.0.0.1 port:8123
SSL proxy :127.0.0.1 port:8123
Socks Host:127.0.0.1 port:9050
But still isn't working.
Still gives me a fail message.
Can someone give me another hand?
Also I resorted back in trying to get privoxy to work.
But everytime I try and view a webpage I get
This is Privoxy 3.0.17 on myhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1), port 8118, enabled
Privoxy was unable to socks4a-forward your request http://onemorelevel.com/ through localhost: connect_to failed: see logfile for details
When I check
It is empty

Ok the polipo-git works perfectly, I got the build error because I forgot to edit line 19 as brenix mentioned.
Thank you so much.
Also I forgot to run the tor daemon.
Jeez I'm a fool.
Btw doesn't anyone know if polipo will get updated with Syu if I didn't download using pacman?
Everything was working and now it is suddenly not able to load pages.
Firefox says the connection has timed out.
And just a few minute ago it was going at good speeds.
I did NOTHING at all except surf the web with tor + polipo.
Any ideas? This is getting very frustrating!
How can i troubleshoot to spot the problem? I've done nothing at all to for this problem to occur!!!! :@
UPDATE: vidalia is stuck at loading network status
Config for polipo from https://gitweb.torproject.org/torbrowse … olipo.conf

Well I found a part of the problem. The daemon keeps dying, I guess I could try to understand what's not working properly. If you run polipo -c /path/to/config then it starts and everything works find. Now to get the daemon up and running.
I think I've figured out the problem.
