I tried installing Tor from the software center and it does not open when I click it and hangs when I run it from the terminal.
I also tried download the 64-bit ZIP , extracting and running it but it says Tor unexpectedly exited.
You need to get the Tor Browser Bundle (I'm not sure if there's a version of this in the repositories). Extract to a convenient location, and in a terminal window execute
Tor should start now.
The answer Timothy Gray provides works for me. But I wanted to have the Tor-application integrated into my Graphical Desktop environment, and put it in the Dock for easy access.
When you open the file "start-tor-browser.desktop" into an editor, you can see one line that is important for this:
You can also add Tor Browser to your desktop's application menu by running './start-tor-browser.desktop --register-app'
So I tried
./start-tor-browser.desktop --register-app Launching './Browser/start-tor-browser --detach --register-app'... Tor Browser has been registered as a desktop app for this user in ~/.local/share/applications/
After that I could look up the Tor-browser in the Applications-menu (or with
<Windows-key><spacebar>) and choose for 'Keep in dock'.
