Vidalia 0.2.10 Released

The latest version of the graphical controller for tor, Vidalia, is now available. The main change is the use of Tor's native geoip database to map relay IP addresses to country. This removes the remote geoip resolution that occurred over Tor in previous versions of Vidalia.

Vidalia can be found at

The full changelog is:

  • Drop remote GeoIP lookups. Instead, the default behavior now is to use the country-level GeoIP database that ships with Tor to map an IP address to a country code, and then map the country code to latitude and longitude with a separate database built into Vidalia.
  • Add a -DUSE_GEOIP build option to enable building with MaxMind's GeoIP C library for using a local city-level or country-level database instead of Tor's database. See README.geoip for details on use.
  • Only update a stream's displayed target address in the network map if no hostname was given in the stream's NEW status event. Fix suggested by Robert Hogan. (Ticket #608)
  • Update the menubar icon at the same time as the dock icon on OS X. Previously, we had a blank icon in the menubar. (Ticket #610)
  • Updated several translations.

This doesn't work. As stated in my original post, Vidalia does not appear in the Maverick (10.10) repository.

Will the binaries in the Lucid repository work on Maverick?

I must not be making myself clear. Let's try it this way. Vidalia does not appear in the repository for Maverick. Therefore, if I follow the instructions at (as you suggest) for Maverick, I cannot get Vidalia 0.2.10. Is the problem that Vidalia 0.2.10 is not available for Maverick? If so, can the binaries for Lucid at be used on Maverick?

64 Bit Ubunti 10.10 here - followed instructions to add torproject to sources.list but can only install vidalia 0.2.9 - cannot install vidalia 0.2.10

Thank you for the reply.
Despite adding the required lines in sources.list, I won't bother with a ticket as the issue very well could have been my end - specifically where in the .list file I added the extra references - anyway, d/l the amd64 .deb and installing this way worked fine - vidalia 0.2.10 is up and running with country resolution.

Can someone help me please.

I have installed Vidalia on my eeepc running ubuntu 10.10 and it worked. I turned off my computer and then restarted vidalia but then it didn't work, saying tor was already running. I restarted the computer several times and tried again but same result. I then uninstall vidalia and re-install it with the terminal and then after running vidalia this time it worked. Again after rebooting my computer I got the same message saying it was running already and so I couldn't get onto the network.
Can someone tell me what I have to do not to re-install vidalia everytime.

thank you

i am new to tor (and am grateful for it) but i cant seem to find anything related to email proxy.
my basic question is, i use internet email (yahoo) thus, are messages i send via yahoo mail also sent thru proxy servers? and if so, will my address be associated with any email i do send?
thank you for your time.

If you are using Yahoo's web mail, and your web browser is configured to use Tor, then the connections to Yahoo's web mail servers will go through Tor and your own IP address will not be visible anywhere in the emails.
