Hello, I’m trying to follow the instructions that Zaid is telling me to do in lecture 2.3, but I’m running into multiple problems. Firstly the after installing gpg the command prompt gpg –keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net –recv-keys 0x4E2C6E8793298290 doesn’t seem to work I keep getting a response of “gpg: keyserver receive failed: Server indicated a failure”. So I can’t do that step. So I went onto the TOR website on the same page that Zaid is getting instructions from at https://support.torproject.org/tbb/how-to-verify-signature/ but that is changed from what it shows in the video. I tried following that, but I don’t know what I am doing and that doesn’t seem to work either. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong but nothing is working right.April 10, 2020 at 3:11 pm #33581Zaid SabihModerator
Yep they did change the instructions but the ones I have followed in the videos should still work, you might just have to run this command and number of times. If it didn’t work for you try the instructions in the link you posted they should work to and if they gave you a positive result then you can go ahead and install it.April 12, 2020 at 12:03 am #33752
I can’t get either your instructions nor TOR’s support instructions to work. On the website where it instructs to type in
gpgv –keyring .\tor.keyring Downloads\torbrowser-install-win64-9.0_en-US.exe.asc Downloads\torbrowser-install-win64-9.0_en-US.exe
it says that
gpgv: can’t open ‘Downloads\torbrowser-install-win64-9.0_en-US.exe.asc’ : No such file or directory
gpgv: verify signatures failed: No such file or directory.
Your instructions also don’t work when I put in
gpg.exe –keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net –recv -keys 0x4E2C6E8793298290
it returns with
gpg: keyserver receive failed: Server indicated a failure
and it keeps doing that. I’ve been trying and retrying for a while now but I keep getting both of those errors for your instructions and TOR’s instructionsApril 13, 2020 at 4:05 pm #33857Zaid SabihModerator
Based on what you included above –> No such file or directory –> means the file does not exist or you did not use the right path of the file.June 1, 2020 at 8:51 pm #38779
Not sure why it didn’t work initially. I did include the directory in the command line that TOR’s guides state, but it still wasn’t working. I came back now and redownloaded everything, deleted everything from my downloads folder, and tried it again and now it works. So that’s good.June 2, 2020 at 6:05 am #38819diegoModerator
