> Have a look at the "tor-browser" script... the private installation in the 
> user's home directory is made by unpacking the archive stored in the 
> /opt/tor-browser directory, e.g. tor-browser-linux64-5.0.6_en-US.tar.xz.
> The SlackBuild script correctly stores the source archive, but first it 
> unpacks the source archive and moves everything to /opt. This is wrong.
> The resulting /opt/Browser (and /opt/start-tor-browser.desktop) is 150MB 
> of dead data. These files are not used for anything. In fact they're not 
> even readable by a user.
> A correct tor-browser.SlackBuild should look like this:
>   https://beingboiled.info/tmp/tor-browser.SlackBuild
> (needs a copy of mozicon128.png and a bit more refinement)
