1. Download – linux, BSD & Unix (Download Tor Browser Bundle (Beta) 32 bit)

2. Save (tor-browser-gnu-linux-i686-2.2.35-7.2-dev-en-US.tar.gz latest version) to Root

3. Open Terminal and type in tar -zxvf tor-browser-gnu-linux-i686-2.2.35-7.2-dev-en-US.tar.gz

4. Type in cd tor-browser_en-US

root@bt:~# cd tor-browser_en-US

5. Type in gedit start-tor-browser

root@bt:~/tor-browser_en-US# gedit start-tor-browser

This will open up the startup config in gedit you need to edit as you will be running this from root.

root@bt:~/tor-browser_en-US# ./start-tor-browser
The Tor Browser Bundle should not be run as root.  Exiting.

The part you need to edit is this bellow. (Note If you press Ctrl and f it will open search in gedit then type root and press enter it will bring you to this part of the script.)

if [ “`id -u`” -eq 0 ]; then
complain “The Tor Browser Bundle should not be run as root.  Exiting.”
exit 1

Change to  (The important part to change is the switch from 0 to 1)

if [ “`id -u`” -eq 1 ]; then
complain “The Tor Browser Bundle should not be run as root.  Exiting.”
exit 1

Then save. This changes the script to ignore that your running in root.

6. Type in ./start-tor-browser

root@bt:~/tor-browser_en-US# ./start-tor-browser

This will start Vidalia tool and once connected to the tor network firefox will open (Can take a few minutes after connected) and you can start.
