See here :


That is not a command to enter, that line is something you add to /etc/apt/sources.list

You can edit this file with :

gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

that isn't actually a command, you're supposed to add those lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list file. This is the file that tells apt (the package manager) where to look for packages. I don't think you actually need to do that stuff though. Those instructions show how to set things up to install tor from the tor project's repositories. The standard ubuntu repositories have copies of to as well though.

All you should really need to do is "sudo apt-get install tor" at a command line.

If for some reason you need the absolute latest version of tor, you can do those instructions in the guide. Open your /etc/apt/sources file as root in a text editor "gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list" and add the two deb and deb-src lines to the end of that file.

Good luck!

Also, if you plan on using tor in firefox, I'd suggest getting either the torbutton or foxyproxy addons from the firefox addon website.
