Please be gentle as I am brand new to linux and ubuntu!
I have been trying to get this to work the the last hour.
I tried every suggestion I found online, multiple ways of downloading, etc.
I am trying to download tor in ubuntu. First i followed the instructions here:
I ran $ apt-get install tor
It is now telling me that I have the most recent version of Tor but I cannot find it anywhere in the dashboard when I search for it.
Next I downloaded it from here:
Now when I extract it I see a file called start-tor-browser.desktop
However when i click on it it takes me to a text file. I have my preferences set to run executable text files when they are opened and it hasn't changed anything.
Any help would really be appreciated, I really want to like ubuntu but I am already getting frustrated.
