I download tor for Linux OS/Ubuntu 17.10 save the file and ran the code as required according to the website. But unable to open the file and run code: tar -xvJf tor-browser-linux64-7.5.2_LANG.tar.xz

however it will not open file to run.

This is the output I'm getting..

tar -xvJf tor-browser-linux64-7.5.2_LANG.tar.xz
tar (child): tor-browser-linux64-7.5.2_LANG.tar.xz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
  • You want to replace LANG with whatever language you downloaded. – cacahuatl Mar 24 '18 at 22:32

just copy the name of the downloaded file, and replace with the following


it should decompress the file


apt-get install tor
