Privoxy doesn't work well under 10.9 Mavericks. Many users have reported problems.

I hope there will be a new version soon to adress the problems.

Hi all,

Starting today the Privoxy team once again provide installers for Macintosh OS X. From now on, a new version of Privoxy's source code will be followed shortly afterwards by binaries for OS X. Download them here:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/ijbswa/files/Macintosh%20%28OS%20X%29/3.0.19%20%28stable%29/

Cheers,

Ian

Thanks so much for the guide! Does anyone have a guide on how to run this as a Parent with SquidMan?
I like to set up a Mac Mini as a proxy server with Squid caching proxy and Privoxy on it.

You will need to have privoxy and SquidMan (squid) installed on your Mac Mini. Open the SquidMan Preferences > Parent : Check the "Use a parent proxy server", Hostname/IP: 127.0.0.1 , Poet: 8118
That's it, check with http://www.leader.ru/secure/who.html if the information goes through Squid.
Also, in Preferences > General HTTP Port should be 8080 , Cache size could be 1G

I've made a script to put in the folder of the source for 3.0.17 that will install this (tested on OSX 10.7 Lion):

Also, an installer and utility for 3.0.16 (that I would recommend installing first) is available here:

Hope this helps someone!

3.0.17 and still no installer for Mac :(

As the newest version is not yet available through macports I tried to install this one following the instruction in the INSTALL document. Installation is easy but for some reason it fails to start.

However, replacing the 3.0.16 macports build with the newly compiled 3.0.17 version works like a charm. Now I have a working 3.0.17 privoxy in my /opt folder, although it is not made available at macports :)

No Mac Installer yet. No way to install unless you are a Unix Geek [I thought a GNU was some kind of Llama?]

The install instructions on the web say to doubleclick on the installer but the latest build is a folder full of Unix stuff that has to be put together with Unix commands. [yikes].

Technically, this is not Macintosh software at all.

I found the same stumbling block when I opened the downloaded version on the MacUpdate page link. That folder contained 86 items. So I went to the developer's website and followed the instructions there to download a zip file which was to include an installer. After being unzipped, this folder had only 14 items!!! But no item was named 'Installer' as per the instruction on the Privoxy web site. I assume it was simply just an over site. I'll stay with v3.0.6 which had the 'Installer' feature.

Installer were provided until v3.0.10

I tried to install 3.0.16 from sources. Installation was successfull and the Mac utility correctly indicated v3.0.16 as installed version.
However, it seems that Privoxy doesn't run correctly, at least with Snow Leopard as it could not be started, not at boot nor even manually.

Still no installer for OS X. What's the point of having this here? We are not all Unix geeks. Privoxy is a great filtering tool but rather unfriendly to install.

Where are the .dmg with the Privoxy utility for easy start/stop/config?

Sticking with 3.0.10 :(
