Hopefully this will be possible and made easy for the user, perhaps with the click of a button?
I agree. It should be built in. Even surveillance friendly Bitcoin has Socks5 compatibility built in.– pl55Dec 26, 2016 at 17:34
There is no way to directly configure Torsocks in the GUI at the time of writing. However, you can run
monerod and connect the GUI to your local daemon.
Set the daemon to connect to Tor. Use the guide here.
