Since I’m using vimprobable for the most part of browsing and I want to use Tor for everything, that doesn’t need lots of bandwidth I’ve been looking for a nice solution to start vimprobable with and without Proxy enabled.
Since it uses the http_proxy variable for this I tried to set a shortcut in wmiirc to start vimprobable in Tor mode which wouldn’t work since wmii tries to execute each part of ‘http_proxy=”127.0.0.1:8118″ vimprobable’.
So I set up two small scripts in /usr/bin and called them vimpossible and vimpossible2.
- export http_proxy=”127.0.0.1:8118″
- vimprobable $1
nothing fancy Now I can start vimprobable using tor just by using the ‘vimpossible’ command.
Need to find a way to nicely paste code here…
