I downloaded tor and extracted it to my desktop. I can run tor using ./start-tor-browser.
I want to run tor from a usb, so I can carry it with me - one of tor's advertised advantages.
I moved the directory tor-browser_en-US to a usb ('usb') at /media/user/usb.
I cannot get ./start-tor-browser to execute; either from the directory it is in, or from home, using the path to the file. I cannot get the file to be executable, in the above directory. I tried using sudo, and tried to directly access/modify file properties.
I also tried to start tor using the file icon accessed via the usb folder icon on the desktop. No go. Hitting start-tor-browser.desktop produced a message telling me that the code is an untrusted launcher. No option to proceed was provided.
Thanks in advance for any guidance.
