    I need some help installing Tor

    Hi, everyone, I wont to install Tor and this is what I followed .
    Code:
            Option one: Tor on Debian squeeze, Debian sid, or Debian testing
    
     
     If you're using Debian, just run
    apt-get install tor 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. In the past they have not reliably been updated. That means you could 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 or cat /etc/debian_version. Here's a quick mapping: 
    
    
    • Debian unstable (sid) is "sid"
    • Debian testing is "wheezy"
    • Debian 6.0 (squeeze) is "squeeze"
    • Debian 5.0 (lenny) is "lenny"
    • Ubuntu 12.04 is "precise"
    • Ubuntu 11.10 is "oneiric"
    • Ubuntu 11.04 is "natty"
    • Ubuntu 10.10 or Trisquel 4.5 is "maverick"
    • Ubuntu 10.04 or Trisquel 4.0 is "lucid"
    • Ubuntu 9.10 or Trisquel 3.5 is "karmic"
    • Ubuntu 8.04 is "hardy"
    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. lenny, sid, maverick 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, running the following command (as root) at your command prompt: apt-get update If there are no errors you're good to continue. We provide a Debian package to help you keep our signing key current. It is recommended you use it. Install it using apt-get install deb.torproject.org-keyring To finally install Tor just run: apt-get install tor 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.de. Option three: Using the development branch of Tor on Debian or Ubuntu If you want to use the development branch of Tor instead (more features and more bugs), you need to add a different set of lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list file: deb http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org <DISTRIBUTION> main deb http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org experimental-<DISTRIBUTION> main where you again substitute the name of your distro (lenny, sid, maverick, ...) in place of <DISTRIBUTION>. Then run the following commands at your command prompt: gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv 886DDD89 gpg --export A3C4F0F979CAA22CDBA8F512EE8CBC9E886DDD89 | sudo apt-key add - apt-get update apt-get install tor deb.torproject.org-keyring Now Tor is installed and running. Move on to step two of the "Tor on Linux/Unix" instructions. Building from source If you want to build your own debs from source you must first add an appropriate deb-src line to sources.list. deb-src http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org <DISTRIBUTION> main deb-src http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org <DISTRIBUTION> main deb-src http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org experimental-<DISTRIBUTION> main You also need to install the necessary packages to build your own debs and the packages needed to build Tor: apt-get install build-essential fakeroot devscripts apt-get build-dep tor Then you can build Tor in ~/debian-packages: mkdir ~/debian-packages; cd ~/debian-packages apt-get source tor cd tor-* debuild -rfakeroot -uc -us cd .. Now you can install the new package: sudo dpkg -i tor_*.deb Now Tor is installed and running. Move on to step two of the "Tor on Linux/Unix" instructions.
    it dose not work.

    Can you copy & paste the exact terminal output so we can see the error message and hopefully assist you?

    Re: I need some help installing Tor

    Based on your current level of Linux knowledge, I recommend that you steer clear of the terminal and install Tor with a couple of mouse clicks in the Software Center as described here:

    +1 but I would go one step further and suggest that until you get more familiar with things including the terminal, avoid Tor.

    Why are you even trying to install it? All you need to do is download the Tor browser bundle and run it, no need to install, it runs out of the box.
