Postby Zorba on Sun Feb 03, 2013 7:17 pm

What is Tor?

Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security known as traffic analysis.
To install Tor browser bundle on Linux Mint open Terminal (Press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy the following commands in it:

1- For 32-bit

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:upubuntu-com/tor
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tor-browser

Now change folder ownership of /.Tor Browser to your current user with this command:
Code: Select all
sudo chown -R USERNAME ~/.tor-browser


1- For 64-bit
Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:upubuntu-com/tor64
 sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tor-browser

Now change folder ownership of /.Tor Browser to your current user with this command:
Code: Select all
sudo chown -R USERNAME ~/.tor-browser





For Linux Mint 16, you can install Tor Bundle by simply by entering the following commands in terminal:


Code: Select all
 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/tor-browser
 sudo apt-get update
 sudo apt-get install tor-browser

These instructions are incorrect. Well, they'll lead to a permanently outdated version of Tor.

The tor website posts better instructions.
