I am running the Ubuntu version 14.04 LTS, 64-bit (Desktop) and now the (Tor Browser Bundle) Ver.3.6.2 refuses to run the shell-script or launch the start-tor-browser?
If you follow these steps below and done everything correctly, then this will work like a charm! This might also work on other versions of Ubuntu & TBB.
- Download the latest (Tor Browser Bundle) from https://www.torproject.org/ and save it into the
- Create a new folder somewhere in the
Homedirectory. Example: Documents and move the
tar.xzpackage into the new folder.
- Right click with the mouse arrow on the
tar.xzpackage and choose: Extract here
- Go back to the new extracted folder
tor-browser_en-USand open it
- Right click with the mouse arrow on top of the
start-tor-browser. In the menu, Choose: Properties » Permissions and mark the 'Execute [X] Allow executing file as program' and hit the
Do not close down the folder! Move the mouse arrow to the very left top of your computer. Now you will be able to see a "Invisible" menu that says:
File | Edit | View | Search | Tools | Documents | Help
Choose: Edit » Preferences » Behaviour Now mark the (Ask each time) square and hit the 'Close' button.
Now you are ready to go!
I've seen alot of people recommending others to install and run “WebUpd8“ and other things like “Polipo“
Well, that's up to each one of you, however I wouldn't recommend any third party software to run within the Tor network. It is also said that the Tor Browser Bundle is more secure to run, rather then installing other softwares like “Polipo“
Just a thought! enjoy your Toring!
There is a great program on GitHub call the torbrowser-launcher. (Here) It will download and verify and install torbrowser for Ubuntu. I have not tried it in 14.04, but it should work. It requires a ppa to be installed, but it is the easiest way that I know of.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:micahflee/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install torbrowser-launcher
