Can you describe this setup?  I would like to use Tor properly, and
currently I cannot.  :(

Hello Joshua, this is my current config.scm:

;; This is an operating system configuration template
;; for a "desktop" setup with Xfce.

(use-modules (gnu) (gnu system nss))
(use-service-modules desktop networking)
(use-package-modules certs xfce)

  (host-name "gnu")
  (timezone "Europe/Berlin")
  (locale "de_DE.UTF-8")

  ;; Assuming /dev/sda is the target hard disk, and "my-root"
  ;; is the label of the target root file system.
  (bootloader (grub-configuration (device "/dev/sda")))
  (file-systems (cons (file-system
                        (device "my-root")
                        (title 'label)
                        (mount-point "/")
                        (type "ext4"))

  (users (cons (user-account
                (name "user")
                (comment "")
                (group "users")
                (supplementary-groups '("wheel" "netdev"
                                        "audio" "video"))
                (home-directory "/home/user"))

  ;; This is where we specify system-wide packages.
  (packages (cons* nss-certs         ;for HTTPS access

  ;; Add GNOME and/or Xfce---we can choose at the log-in
  ;; screen with F1.  Use the "desktop" services, which
  ;; include the X11 log-in service, networking with
  ;; NetworkManager, and more.
  (services (cons* (console-keymap-service "de")
                   (service tor-service-type)
  ;; Allow resolution of '.local' host names with mDNS.
  (name-service-switch %mdns-host-lookup-nss))

And here are the relevant entries for Tor:

(use-service-modules desktop networking)

(service tor-service-type)
