Description

Hi all,

my system is: Linux/Lubuntu 20.04.2 LTS, 64 bit and I´m using quassel on that system.

Per default it came preconfigured with "IRC Networks: irc.ubuntu.com:8001".
As an example I use the chatroom "#fish" (the one for fish-shell).

Yet I noticed the following entry after the connection is established:

"rosika (~quassel@dynamic-[my-ip-address]) hat #fish betreten". (So basically: "rosika has entered #fish").

The only thing I wouldn´t be over-enthusiastic about is the fact that my real ip-address is displayed here. So I installed "*tor*" as an addition and thus have the command "*torsocks*" available.

In principle tor works as I found out by comparing the output of these two commands:

curl ipv4.icanhazip.com
torsocks curl ipv4.icanhazip.com

They yielded different IPs which is fine.

After establishing that torification in general works I prefixed quassel with torsocks:

The GUI started alright but when trying to establish a connection to e.g. "#fish" the GUI closes and the programme shuts down. Here´s what the terminal says about it:

torsocks quassel

Surely I´m doing something wrong here. Can anybody help me how to proceed now, please?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Many greetings.
