  • Determine your Ubuntu version by running the following command:
     $ lsb_release -c
  • As root, add the following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list. Use the version you found in the previous step for .
     $ deb http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org <version> main
     $ deb-src http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org <version> main
  • Add the gpg key used to sign the packages by running the following commands:
     $ gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv A3C4F0F979CAA22CDBA8F512EE8CBC9E886DDD89
     $ gpg --export A3C4F0F979CAA22CDBA8F512EE8CBC9E886DDD89 | sudo apt-key add -
