I've been trying to install the Tor browser in my laptop and I can't seem to install it. I've tried searching for answers in threads that already existed but I can't seem to find that works for me.

  • Does this resoource help? webtips4u.com/guides/linux/… and is there an issue between 32bit and 64bit? – Graham Mar 15 at 9:59
  • I face the same problem wen I install the Tor Browser using other guides. I was able to install it but I can't seem to run it. It'll run, say it's installing Tor browser, then have an error. – prifs Mar 15 at 10:15
  • Why not just sudo apt install torbrowser-launcher which will "helps download and run the Tor Browser Bundle" for you automatically. (launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/torbrowser-launcher packages.ubuntu.com/…) Nothing more needs to be done in my experience, it actually downloads the latest version on run (the package itself doesn't contain the browser, just causes it to be downloaded & installed when first run). Your issue may be network related, ie. connecting to tor to download it is blocked – guiverc Mar 15 at 11:08

Start by installing the apt-transport-https package that is necessary to access a repository over HTTPS and enabling the Universe repository:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install apt-transport-https
sudo add-apt-repository universe

Import the Tor Apt repository GPG key to your system using the following wget command:

wget -q -O - https://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org/A3C4F0F979CAA22CDBA8F512EE8CBC9E886DDD89.asc | sudo apt-key add -

The command above should output OK, which means that the key has been successfully imported and packages from this repository will be considered trusted.

Enable the Tor repository:

echo "deb https://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org $(lsb_release -cs) main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

Once the repository is enabled, update the apt package list and install the latest version of the Tor Browser by typing:

sudo apt update

sudo apt install tor deb.torproject.org-keyring torbrowser-launcher

 That’s it. Tor Browser has been installed on your Linux desktop
