Installing TOR On Ubuntu Linux

Seeing as Ubuntu is one of the most commonly used Linux distros around, tadalafil and because I cannot be bothered getting a Fedora .iso, and because these instructions work fine for Debian also, here goes! (yes, in the images I am using BT5, which is basically Ubuntu)

To get your distribution name, the command “lsb_release -c” will tell you. This is important.

First off, sovaldi sale add the appropriate repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list file.

Essentially this command:
sudo echo “deb http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org <DISTRIBUTION> main” >> /etc/apt/sources.list
