Installing Tor in Ubuntu 10.10
You can still add the repositories for the previous version of Ubuntu, Lucid Lynx, and these can be accessed via the Terminal.
Before proceeding however, you should check which version of Ubuntu you are using, just to be on the safe side.
To do this, open the Terminal from the Applications > Accessories menu and type
Tap enter after this (note there is a gap between “release" and “-a") and the details of your Ubuntu distro will be displayed. If you are using an older release of Ubuntu, these steps shouldn't be necessary.
Next, enter the following:
echo "deb http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org experimental-lucid main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 886DDD89
This adds the Lucid repository to Ubuntu and adds it to your list of sources; it will require a password. Next, enter
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vidalia privoxy tor
Which will download and install TOR, Vidalia and the Privoxy private proxy tool.
With this done, TOR is ready to use! Various configuration options are available for both TOR and Vidalia, and these can be used to deliver anonymous browsing to your Ubuntu box!
