How to install Tor Bundle permanently

Postby Zorba on Fri Feb 01, 2013 7:16 pm

I am using Linux Mint 14 64bit Cinnamon I want to install Tor Bundle permanently and create an icon )for it to use it with my EDGE connection (very limited 30 KiB max without having to run command lines everytime I want to use it.
I have tried this link http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-install-tor-browser-bundle-in-ubuntu.html and this https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian but non of them worked :( :(
BTW I have already downloaded Tor Bundle 64bit :D

Helps if you give some details, like which desktop environment you are using. For Cinnamon and MATE at least, right-click the menu button and you can edit your menu there. Add an entry for your program.

I have managed to install it with these commands I found at http://www.upubuntu.com/2012/08/install-tor-browser-bundle-from-ppa-on.html:
Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:upubuntu-com/tor64
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tor-browser


But the tutorial says:
Change now folder ownership of Tor Browser to your current user with this command:

sudo chown $USER -R ~/tor-browser/

and I don't know what is that supposed to mean :roll: :roll:
And when I try to run Tor I get this message
Code: Select all

Erm, it means open a terminal and run that command. It will change ownership of all the files in the .tor-browser folder from root to you, which as the errors indicate is needed. Note that the command is wrong, as it should be .tor-browser and not tor-browser. So instead:
Code: Select all
sudo chown $USER -R ~/.tor-browser/
