I experienced the same problem. Looks like the latest version requires the existence of user.filter. Creating an empty one fixed the problem for me:

sudo touch /etc/privoxy/user.filter

Comment 3 udo 2013-03-27 14:49:56 UTC
Great tip, the newer version now does start.
Thanks!

Can the rpm be fixed to do this?
Can help other users...

Comment 4 Gwyn Ciesla 2013-03-27 15:20:00 UTC
Ugh.  Ok, I thought I fixed this, and I did.  But, (there's always a but) /etc/privoxy is marked config(noreplace), which is as it should be, but I think it's preventing user.filter from being created on upgrades.  I'll see about some scripting to create it on upgrade if it doesn't exist.
