[Solved] Incomplete install of Tor

Hello again good people and pundits. Since my last activity here I've installed ascii 2.1 on my Asus laptop. Things went well except it failed to install grub but a quick search fixed that. I'm impressed at the lightning speed with which it boots and now it's up and running I naturally want to install my favorite programs. Had no luck installing Tor thru the package manager so switched to a terminal. It seemed to install ok but went I went to the menu > internet the shortcut is not there. Nor is it in accessories. When I searched in run program nothing came up.

Here's what happened:

Re: [Solved] Incomplete install of Tor

You might need to install torbrowser-launcher (or one of the other suggested packages)?

I've never used tor so that's just a guess based on it's name.

Re: [Solved] Incomplete install of Tor

you probably need tor browser.
apt install torbrowser-launcher
or download from official website. https://www.torproject.org/download/

tor package is the tor daemon only. it doesn't include torbrowser, nor do you want it to run torbrowser. torbrowser includes its own tor daemon.

That didn't work:

root@devuan:~# apt install torbrowser-launcher 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package torbrowser-launcher is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'torbrowser-launcher' has no installation candidate
root@devuan:~# 

So I went back to the package manager but a search didn't find it either.

or download from official website. https://www.torproject.org/download/

Got it that time. I was surprised to see that I didn't have to install it. I just extracted the archive and it worked straight away. Thanks for that.
