This question already has an answer here:

I'm using Kubuntu 16.10 and I'd like to install tor browser bundle. I saw that there is a tor hardened version and sandboxed version. I downloaded packages but just extracting them doesn't work for me. So I need now to know how can i install both of them using terminal.

There is a "Linux Instructions" section in the download page.

Take the hardened version for example, just decompress the file: tar -xvJf tor-browser-linux64-6.5a6-hardened_ALL.tar.xz

And change the working directory: cd tor-browser/

Start the browser: ./start-tor-browser.desktop

One note on the instruction page is that not to unpack or run TBB as root.
