I can start and kill tor via command line, but I want to control it with Vidalia. The browser bundle works, but I'd rather not use it. This is the message log in vidalia:

Sep 25 19:29:13.696 [Notice] Tor v0.2.3.22-rc (git-4a0c70a817797420) running on Linux.
Sep 25 19:29:13.696 [Notice] Tor can't help you if you use it wrong! Learn how to be safe at https://www.torproject.org/download/download#warning
Sep 25 19:29:13.696 [Notice] Read configuration file "/home/brian/.vidalia/torrc".
Sep 25 19:29:13.697 [Notice] Initialized libevent version 2.0.16-stable using method epoll (with changelist). Good.
Sep 25 19:29:13.697 [Notice] Opening Socks listener on
Sep 25 19:29:13.697 [Warning] /var/run/tor is not owned by this user (brian, 1000) but by debian-tor (114). Perhaps you are running Tor as the wrong user?
Sep 25 19:29:13.697 [Warning] Before Tor can create a control socket in "/var/run/tor/control", the directory "/var/run/tor" needs to exist, and to be accessible only by the user account that is running Tor.  (On some Unix systems, anybody who can list a socket can connect to it, so Tor is being careful.)
Sep 25 19:29:13.698 [Notice] Closing partially-constructed Socks listener on
Sep 25 19:29:13.698 [Warning] Failed to parse/validate config: Failed to bind one of the listener ports.
Sep 25 19:29:13.698 [Error] Reading config failed--see warnings above.
