chris z Posted August 30, 2003 Report Share Posted August 30, 2003 i read about this program called privoxy http://www.privoxy.org/ . it's supposed to supresss popups, ads, etc. i installed via rpm & i've set up my browser (Konqueror) according to the web sites instructions. proxy address 127.0.0.1 for http, https, ftp on port 8118. my browser works but i still get popups & fail the test at their website that can be found here http://www.privoxy.org/config/ . i saw a couple of references to privoxy doing a search here at the forums, but it didn't tell me much. does something else have to be done to set this up properly, other than just adding those settings to the browser? it installed to /etc/privoxy via the rpm installation. there's no "read me" file, but there is a config file in that folder. do you have to do ./configure to get this working? is it even worth it? i know Mozilla & Opera have built in popup controls, but Moz is slow as a snail in super glue on my machine & i don't want Opera with banners & ads. any help, anybody?
