    Installing TOR

    I was going to attempt installing TOR using this as my guide:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/TOR
    However I see that the additions for sources.list are for fiesty & edgy. When I go to the URL specified, there is no directory for hardy. Would I be safe installing the fiesty version? There IS, however, a "stable" directory. Should I maybe install THAT?

    I also dug up these directions:
    http://www.ubuntu-unleashed.com/2007...buntu-and.html
    Are these any "better"? (I get nervous anytime I see the word "compile" in these things... )

    If there's any chance I may bork my system screwing around with this, I'd rather just wait until I'm more experienced, but it seems somewhat straightforward. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!!!

    Re: Installing TOR

    i beleive the reason why there are no hardy sources listed on that page is because tor was added to the main repositories. Try
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install tor
    Then continue from where it says installing privoxy

    Re: Installing TOR

    When I try and install Tor using the above terminal command, I get a message saying

    "E: Couldn't find package tor".

    Why is this?

    Re: Installing TOR

    do you have the universe repos enabled?
    also, in my hardy xubuntu install, it's in synaptic so it should be dead easy to install (not that i know what it actually IS)
