How to run JonDoBrower on Puppy Linux (macPup550)

Post by HappyHarry » Thu Nov 21, 2013 13:47

Hi Forum members & Admin Team,

Thanks in advance for reading & trying to help.

I've used jonDoBrowser on windows PC.
It was very simple to use.


Now I'm trying to use JonDoBrowser on Linux.
It is MacPuppy Linux,
macPup550 version, frugal installation.
# uname -a
Linux puppypc 3.2.29 #1 SMP Thu Sep 13 20:33:02 GMT-8 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
By Using the available earlier posts and links in this forum ,
#1. I've learn that JRE -java Runtime s/w - is imp .
--- I've installed it on the sytem.

#2. I've downloaded the JonDo s/w
--- I've extracted it in a folder

#3. I've downloaded the JonDoBrowser s/w
--- I've extracted it in a folder
--- and tried to use it - but unSuccessful
---------------------

-------------- My failure with JonDoBrowser --------------
Step #1. I extract the file "JonDoBrowser-0.11-linux-i686-en-US.tar.xz" in a folder

Step #2. I try to extract the file, but I get error
# tar -zxvf JonDoBrowser-0.11-linux-i686-en-US.tar.xz
gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
Step #3. I extract the file using the command

Code: Select all

# tar -xaf JonDoBrowser-0.11-linux-i686-en-US.tar.xz 
Step #4. I run the command

Code: Select all

# ./start-jondobrowser.sh 
Step #5. Hurray !! jonDoBrowser open up !!
but I get the "about:jondobrowser" page

Step #6. I click on the "http://ip-check.info/?lang=en" link

Step #7. I get the error message
JonDoBrowser additionally needs the JonDo proxy program to be able to connect to the JonDonym service.
You will find it here:
https://anonymous-proxy-servers.net/downloads/JAP.jar

The image of how the error/Message looked


Step #8. So, NOW, I have download the JAP.jar file
-------- but don't know what to do with it.
-------------- My failure with JonDoBrowser --------------


------------ "The Installation assistant -JAP/JonDo" ------------
All alone, the JAP.jar works successfully, by executing the command

Code: Select all

 #java -jar /mnt/home/JAP.jar

It does anonymity test as expected.

but it wants me to manually change the proxy in my firefox browser & use.
or download JonDoFox and start without any configaration.

#2. I can manually change the proxy in my existing firefox brower
by changing Proxy: 127.0.0.1 , Port:4001
And It works !!
I become anonymous !
------------ "The Installation assistant -JAP/JonDo" ------------

BUT what I want to do is :
Run the JonDoBrowser successfully


So Please guide me how to get it going :
#1. How to use JAP.jar to get JonDoBrowser work successfully
#2. where should I put JAP.jar
#3. Any file permissions I should give
#4. what command should I execute .

NOTE:
#1. I couldn't find any threads/posts/tutorial in any forum in the world
--- which has any instructions for running
--- the JonDoBrowser on Puppy Linux.

#2. I can't use any standard linux as RedHatLInux, debian etc due to their enormous size.

#3. I just use PuppyLinux because of it's extremely small size
and I get the feel of using Linux.

#4. If successful, (probably) it will be first successful case of jonDoBrowser running on MacPup Linux

No problem.

For anonymous surfing with JonDonym you need:

1: a prepared browser (JonDoBrowser or Firefox+JonDoFox)
2: the proxy client JonDo
Step #5. Hurray !! jonDoBrowser open up !!
JonDoBrowser is working for you - well.

(A small advice for the using of "tar". By using the options "tar -xaf..." the tool auto-detects the compression and will use the suitable uncompress tool(recommended). If you were using the option "z" tar will use only gzip uncompression. Our archive was compressed with "xz" and not with "gzip".)
#2. I've downloaded the JonDo s/w
--- I've extracted it in a folder
Did you run the install script? Please follow the install instruction, see our online help: https://anonymous-proxy-servers.net/en/ ... steps.html

Code: Select all

> cd jondo_linux
> sudo ./install_jondo
(You don't need to install JonDoFox, because you will use JonDoBrowser)

After installation you have to start JonDoBrowser AND JonDo. (for JonDo you will see a starter in the application menü "network" of your desktop).

At first start of JonDo you have to follow the "First Start Wizard". It will verify your installation an anonymity, see: https://anonymous-proxy-servers.net/en/ ... izard.html

How to run JonDoBrower on Puppy Linux (macPup550)-Solved

Post by HappyHarry » Fri Nov 22, 2013 19:55

Hello Cane
Many thanks for getting back.

After reading your reply, I understood more clearly about
few mistakes I was committing viz,
a. the wrongly untaring the file
b. Not checking the Network Menu after unpacking/installing the JonDo
--- perhaps because I couldn't get the JRE thing right.
(You don't need to install JonDoFox, because you will use JonDoBrowser)
Yes !!
I did not use JonDoFox, & I'm using JonDoBrowser
After installation you have to start JonDoBrowser AND JonDo. (for JonDo you will see a starter in the application menü "network" of your desktop)
I've check it only after reading your post.
& I'm surprised to see the "JonDo (Anonymous Proxy)" entry in Network menu in my MacPup
--- just as You already have mentioned that "it" will appear .
but I'm not sure if it came there due to
javaw -jar ./JAP.jar --- I'd issued it many times
or
java -jar ./JAP.jar --- I'd issued it many times
or
by this commands which I have executed 2-3 times
cd jondo_linux
./install_jondo
but not
sudo ./install_jondo --- I did not issue it even once

Now I use 2 steps to start JonDo

...... BUT NOW .......
While I was offline a friend of mine helped me to get the JonDoBrowser working successfully.
And I recreated below, the steps and screenshots for it.


and the message I had composed and kept ready to post
(prior to reading your above post).

What you have mentioned as JonDo Proxy Client, I've mentioned as "JAP/JonDo"
Hoping it would be useful for many Puppy Linux users.

Many thanks again for all your Kind help.

----------------- Begin :: JonDo Proxy Client+ JonDoBrowser on MacPup -----------------
Hi,
Finally I got the JonDoBrowser working successfully on my macPuppy Linux (MacPup550) with the help of a friend.

Below are the completes steps for it.

Getting the necessary files
#1. JRE - JavaRunTime Environment
#2. JonDo Application in JAP.jar
#3. JonDoBrowser

Installing the JRE in Puppy using sfs setup

Step #1. Get the latest JRE sfs file ("Squash File System") for your version of puppy

Code: Select all

http://shino.pos.to/party/bridge.cgi?puppy/opt/
Step #2. download/put/move/copy sfs file in /mnt/home directory

Step #3. Configure it to load on-the-fly at boot time using the "SFS File Loader"
Follow the below menu in your PuppyLinux version
Main Menu icon > Application > Setup > SFS-Load on-the-fly (SFS File Loader)

How to open the SFS File-Loader in MacPup/Puppy Linux :
http://postimg.org/image/bzpiykysv/

Step #4. in the "SFS File Loader" dialogue box, Do the following
a. Click on the Arrow in the Left Pane
--- You will see the list of available SFS files

b. Select the required SFS file by "Single Click"
--- Here you'll have to select the JRE sfs file you downloaded

c. Click the "Load" button On the lower side in Left Pane,

d. Click "OK" Button to confirm the sfs loading.

e. You will also be asked "Do you want to run the application now?"
--- Click "RUN" Button to Confirm.
--- this will load the JRE on-the-fly, sparing you some time to reboot the macPup.

f. You may check "SFS Loader" again and confirm that the JRE sfs has moved to the right Pane.
--- now, after this, the JRE will be automatically loaded every time the macPup boots.

How a SFS File-Loader looks like in macPup/Puppy Linux :

Getting the JonDo Application in JAP.jar :
This is called as Installation "by hand"
Download JonDo JAP.jar file

Code: Select all

https://anonymous-proxy-servers.net/downloads/JAP.jar
Getting the JonDoBrowser :
Step #1. visit the downlod page

Code: Select all

https://anonymous-proxy-servers.net/en/jondobrowser.html
Step #2. download the latest available "JonDoBrowser for Linux"
currently

Code: Select all

https://anonymous-proxy-servers.net/en/downloads/JonDoBrowser-0.11-linux-i686-en-US.tar.xz
Step #3. Unpack the archive: > tar -xaf JonDoBrowser-*-US.tar.xz
currently : tar -xaf JonDoBrowser-0.11-linux-i686-en-US.tar.xz


Starting the JonDod using JAP.jar

Step #1. Browse to the folder where JAP.jar is present/downloaded.
alternaltely, you may
Open a terminal, then navigate to the folder containing the "JAP.jar" file by using the command
cd <JAP.jar file Folder>
for example cd /mnt/home
How I arranged the JonDo files/Folders :
http://www.enlightenment.org/ss/e-528f0 ... 020566.jpg

Step #2. anwhere in the folder, do "Right Click" > "Window" > "Terminal Here"

Step #3. execute the command using a command terminal.from the directory
java -jar ./JAP.jar

This will open up two windows one after other
a. "Installation assistant JAP/JonDo"
b. "JAP/JonDo version(XX.XX.XXX)"

The JAP/JonDo Proxy Client Starting :

Steep #4.
If internet connection is available,
In the The Anonym-O-Meter, you will see the "JONDO STATUS" as "CONNECTED"

Step #5. You may double click anwhere on "JAP/JonDo" and get a minimized Floating version of it

Step #6. Now that JAP/JonDo is connected
you can do Anonymity checks using the "Installation assistant JAP/JonDo"
---- or alternately you may close the "Installation assistant JAP/JonDo", if you wish.

Step #7. DO NOT close the Terminal Window used in the above steps.
--- else the "JAP/JonDo" window will close &
--- you will not be able to do Anonymous Browsing

Step #7. Now you may
a. start JonDoBrowser - Secure Anonomous Browser
or alternately
b. Start your normal browser - less Secure
by changing Proxy:127.0.0.1 Port:4001

Starting the JonDoBrower

Step #1. Navigate to the JonDoBrowser folder. (remember where you extracted it)
alternately, you may
Open a terminal, then navigate to the folder using the command
cd <JonDoBrower Folder>
for example cd /mnt/home/JonDoBrowser

Step #2. Anwhere in the folder, do "Right Click" > "Window" > "Terminal Here"

Step #3. execute the below command in the Command Terminal
./start-jondobrowser.sh

This will open up the JonDoBrowser window.
you may do Secure/Anonymous Browsing in it.

Step #4. You may click on "IP-Check" bookmark & check & confirm that your IP is hidden.
How the JonDoBrowser looks like :

Step #. DO NOT close the Terminal Window used in the above steps.
--- else the "JonDoBrowser" will close &
--- you will not be able to do any Browsing

Hope this will assist anyone trying to install & use jonDoBrowser in PuppyLinux of their choice.

Step #4. You may click on "IP-Check" bookmark & check & confirm that your IP is hidden.
How the JonDoBrowser looks like :
It works - well done.

You may create menu entries or desktop start buttons for both application (JonDoBrowser and JAP/JonDo) to simplify the start. I am not sure, how this may be done with Puppy, but I think, it is possible.

No problem.
Great thread!
Especially the tutorial of your "friend".

Please allow me to mention two things worth to be noticed

- You are aware of always using puppylinux (and its other versions) with admin rights only.
Is this "no problem" for you?

- More than "extremely small size"!
There are two solid and active linux distros, Damn Small Linux (based on Debian, Knoppix) and Tiny Core Linux (Independent).

Thank you very much!

Yes ! I'm fine with it.
I use it for online surfing,
feel it is better for surfing than surfing using Windows.

Oh yes !! Now I remember, I tried to use it last year.
When I wanted to start learning linux.
but I was put off because
Tiny core was too tiny & I didn't find anything in it to use;
while I was expecting a lot of packages/modules inbuilt in it.
I didn't knew we could add more modules to it.
So I quit it.

And for unknown reasons I couldn't run the DSL on my System
Either on a Virtual Machine or by burning the iso image to Cd.

and (then) I found wary Puppy Linux, MacPup. But they used to crash every now & then.
But Now I find the MacPup550 to quite stable.

@"cane" Sir !
Can you please mark this thread as Solved/Resolved
because I think I'm not able to edit the 1st Post,
and add "solved" in the subjected line

YES!
Desktop Icons should be possible to create.
I'll check for it.

Because
#1. The purpose of Creating this Thread is fulfilled now.
I got the Solution to my Problem.
And the Solution is updated in the thread.


#2. Anybody having similar problem, anywhere in the world,
may google search "their Query" alongwith the word solved.
It would assist them to filter out the unsolved issues &
to quickly reach the solved issues.

This is what I do when I get heaps of results in a Google search query.

Other than these, I've no other reasons to mark this Thread as Solved.
