I compiled and installed tor on minibian.
All I must do now is to start tor with
But all I get is

sudo tor there's no problem and it runs smoothly but normally I don't have run tor as root.
Now I don´t know how to deal with the ownership of the logs.
When I do
sudo chmod 777 -R /var/log/tor tor runs but then there's less security.
