After installing and starting privoxy via 'systemctl start privoxy' the logging directory is empty and there is no log file.

/etc/privoxy/config contains logdir and logfile entries.

It seems there's no log because privoxy is started with the --no-daemon option which prevents logging to the configured location (see manpage of privoxy).

Additional info:

community/privoxy 3.0.26-3

logdir /var/log/privoxy
logfile privoxy.log

Steps to reproduce:

1. pacman -S privoxy
2. systemctl start privoxy
3. configure your browser proxy to localhost:8118
4. check /var/log/privoxy for any logs
