Running 64-bit Linux Mint 19.1, Cinnamon 4.0.10, on 2.4GHz Intel Q6600 quad core w/8GB of RAM.
TOR browser was taking 10-15 minutes to load so I followed TOR's instructions and deleted the folder "tor-browser_en-US", then reinstalled from CLI using
sudo apt install -y torbrowser-launcher. Not only did it still take >10 minutes to load, it came back with all my previous add-ons and settings. Something else obviously needed to be deleted so I deleted every directory or file I could find related to Tor (with the exception of "non-operational" files like icons and such).
That went on for quite a while and when I was satisfied I'd done all the damage I could, I tried reinstalling. Then I got this:
$ sudo apt install -y torbrowser-launcher Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done torbrowser-launcher is already the newest version (0.2.9-2). 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
It says it's installed so I tried launching it, and got this:
$ torbrowser-launcher %u Command 'torbrowser-launcher' not found, but can be installed with: sudo apt install torbrowser-launcher
Except that's the command I already ran. But sure enough, "which torbrowser-launcher" returns no response.
So apparently I've deleted enough files to prevent it launching but not enough files to give it to understand it's uninstalled.
Any ideas how to proceed?
