    What have you tried to do and where are you getting stuck?

    I get stuck when adding the repos. I exit out of Software Sources and it tells me to refresh, which I do, then is gives me errors that say it can't add the keys.

    Re: tor

    Have you tried these steps?

    Option one: Tor on Debian lenny, Debian sid, or Debian testing

    If you're using Debian stable (lenny), unstable (sid), or testing (squeeze), just run
    apt-get install tor tor-geoipdb as root.

    Note that this might not always give you the latest stable Tor version, but you will receive important security fixes. To make sure that you're running the latest stable version of Tor, see option two below.

    Now Tor is installed and running. Move on to step two of the "Tor on Linux/Unix" instructions.
    Option two: Tor on Ubuntu or Debian

    Do not use the packages in Ubuntu's universe. They are unmaintained and out of date. That means you'll be missing stability and security fixes.

    You'll need to set up our package repository before you can fetch Tor. First, you need to figure out the name of your distribution. A quick command to run is lsb_release -c. Here's a quick mapping:

    * Ubuntu 10.10 is "maverick"
    * Ubuntu 10.04 or Trisquel 4.0 is "lucid"
    * Ubuntu 9.10 or Trisquel 3.5 is "karmic"
    * Ubuntu 9.04 is "jaunty"
    * Ubuntu 8.10 is "intrepid"
    * Ubuntu 8.04 is "hardy"
    * Debian Etch is "etch"
    * Debian Lenny is "lenny"

    Then add this line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

    deb http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org <DISTRIBUTION> main

    where you put the codename of your distribution (i.e. etch, lenny, sid, maverick, lucid, karmic, jaunty, intrepid, hardy or whatever it is) in place of <DISTRIBUTION>.

    Then add the gpg key used to sign the packages by running the following commands at your command prompt:

    gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv 886DDD89
    gpg --export A3C4F0F979CAA22CDBA8F512EE8CBC9E886DDD89 | sudo apt-key add -

    Now refresh your sources and install Tor by running the following commands (as root) at your command prompt:

    apt-get update
    apt-get install tor tor-geoipdb

    Now Tor is installed and running. Move on to step two of the "Tor on Linux/Unix" instructions.

    The DNS name deb.torproject.org is actually a set of independent servers in a DNS round robin configuration. If you for some reason cannot access it you might try to use the name of one of its part instead. Try deb-master.torproject.org, mirror.netcologne.de or tor.mirror.youam

    found on https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en#ubuntu

    Re: tor

    if you have already add the repository using the Software Center
    All you need to do is to open a terminal and enter


    gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv 886DDD89

    and

    gpg --export A3C4F0F979CAA22CDBA8F512EE8CBC9E886DDD89 | sudo apt-key add -

    after that the key should be added and you can install tor using the Synaptic Package Manager

    Re: tor

    Is this helping at all? Should I explain the next step? Oh and why do you need Tor? Edit I mean how do you want to use tor because if you just want the basics you might want to try the tour browser its easier to set up.

    Re: tor

    I'll try those steps when I get the time. Sorry for being gone, little busy right now.

    Basically I want to mess with my IP address so I can access certain things (with firefox, xchat, and pidgin) without anyone being able to trace me.

    That doesn't sound good.
