Wasabi wallet can't connect to tor #606
Wallet does not starting properly. It cannot connect to tor.
Tor version: Tor version 0.3.0.10 (git-5da2fc629a0670b3).
How To Reproduce?
The stack trace on my console:
Could you check Tor is running, please?
Verify Tor is running

You should see something like:
Note: netstats is not install by default in Ubuntu.
The previous steps assume you have installed Tor and it is running using the default port, if that is not the case let us know.
Just in case, please confirm Tor is configured to listen on port 9050:
Also, confirm you don't have a $(HOME)/.torrc file.
To sum it up. This is an unfortunate thing. Some Linux repo is shipping with very old Tor versions, which do not yet support the 3rd generation Tor network.
With the 1.0 version, we will ship our own Tor, so it won't be a problem.
Update your Tor or build it from source code: https://www.torproject.org/download/download.html.en
For freshly installed Ubuntu 16.04, building from source code, the steps are:
From here on, every time you want to launch Wasabi, you must run Tor, the one you just built. You should also make sure no old version of Tor is running:
sudo killall tor cd /src/or ./tor
