Found a few online lessons for absolute beginners and am trying to get to grips with it. Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks for looking,


OK, first let’s remove the “tor” package and it’s dependencies . it’s not really necessary for the tor-browser.

Open a terminal and run:

sudo apt-get remove --purge tor tor-geoipdb torsocks

OK, (in case you haven’t already, let’s add the webupd8team/tor-browser PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/tor-browser

and hit enter when prompted.

update the package cache:

sudo apt-get update

and install tor-browser:

sudo apt-get install tor-browser

“Tor Browser” should now be in your “Internet” menu

Or you can start it from the command line with:


Mark thanks for your help, it was going ok until the install where this came up:

N: Ignoring file ‘tor.list$’ in directory ‘/etc/apt/sources.list.d/’ as it has an invalid filename extension
N: Ignoring file ‘tor.list$’ in directory ‘/etc/apt/sources.list.d/’ as it has an invalid filename extension
E: Unable to locate package browser

Not sure what happened, i have the package saved, any thoughts on what happened?

Also read that privoxy should be run with tor browser is that true?



What’s the output from:

ls -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d


cat /etc/lsb-release


cat /etc/apt/sources.list | tail -n 10
