How to install tor?

I downloaded the tar.gz file from TORproject .org and unzipped it. I clicked everything inside the directories but nothing happened. I also tried to install the addon from Mozilla Addons. The addon is installed but I can't see the TOR button anywhere. I checked relevant the option in the preferences section of tools>addons.

How do I install it?


gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring \
 /etc/apt/secring.gpg --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt \
 /trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver \ --recv-keys 886DDD89


gpg: requesting key 886DDD89 from hkp server
gpg: key 886DDD89: public key " archive signing key" imported
gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:               imported: 1  (RSA: 1)

Or he COULD just add the Lucid repository...

echo "deb experimental-lucid main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 886DDD89

Still running Tor/Vidalia from there with no problem.

Can you please explain me how do I add a Lucid repository? I guess by typing this in the terminal? Thanks. – Prateek Mishra Nov 13 '10 at 10:24
Thanks a ton. It worked and its a simple. :) – Prateek Mishra Nov 15 '10 at 16:12

Installing from a source tar.gz requires more skills, you should install the package from the repositories instead:

Thanks a lot. It worked. – Prateek Mishra Nov 4 '10 at 15:58
Would you kindly direct me to someplace where I can learn how to install from a source tar.gz. Should I ask a different question for this? I tried to find if this has been asked previously, but couldn't. Thanks. – Prateek Mishra Nov 4 '10 at 16:18
It should be a different question, I guess it was asked already. – João Pinto Nov 4 '10 at 17:03
