For GNU/Linux

  1. Oscail an leathanach íoslódála do Bhrabhsálaí Tor.

  2. Download the GNU/Linux .tar.xz file.

  3. (Molta) Deimhnigh síniú an chomhaid.

  4. Now follow either the graphical or the command-line method:

Graphical method

  • When the download is complete, extract the archive using an archive manager.

  • You'll need to tell your GNU/Linux that you want the ability to execute shell scripts. Navigate to the newly extracted Tor Browser directory. Right click on start-tor-browser.desktop, open Properties or Preferences and change the permission to allow executing file as program. Double-click the icon to start up Tor Browser for the first time.

Make the .desktop file executable in Linux

Note: On Ubuntu and some other distros if you try to launch start-tor-browser.desktop a text file might open up. To change this behavior and launch Tor Browser instead, follow this:

  • Launch "Files" (GNOME Files/Nautilus)
  • Click on Preferences.
  • Navigate to the 'Behavior' Tab.
  • Select "Run them" or "Ask what to do" under "Executable Text Files".
  • If you choose the latter click on "Run" after launching the start-tor-browser.desktop file.

Change behavior of executable text file to always run in Linux

Command-line method

  • When the download is complete, extract the archive with the command tar -xf [TB archive].

  • From inside the Tor Browser directory, you can launch Tor Browser by running:

    ./start-tor-browser.desktop

    Note: If this command fails to run, you probably need to make the file executable. From within this directory run: chmod +x start-tor-browser.desktop

  • Some additional flags that can be used with start-tor-browser.desktop from the command-line:

Flag Description
--register-app To register Tor Browser as a desktop application.
--verbose To display Tor and Firefox output in the terminal.
--log [file] To record Tor and Firefox output in file (default: tor-browser.log).
--detach To detach from terminal and run Tor Browser in the background.
--unregister-app To unregister Tor Browser as a desktop application.
